Each volume represents a further stage in the "deterioration of memory" of The Caretaker character.
Leyland James Kirby's latest series launched last fall, and it chronicles The Caretaker character's struggle with early-onset dementia. Each release of the six-part album represents a further stage of deterioration, "falling further towards nothingness" according to Kirby's label, History Always Favours The Winners.
On this second record, the protagonist "gradually realizes that all all is not well and begins to rummage deeper into the recesses of his memory." Musically, that manifests as the loops of the first album "begin to subtly unravel... to drift off and ponder fuller segments of tea dance strings and horns."
