New Pausal is out next week on PITP


I've listened to it twice already via bandcamp and it's very good. the track "Apnoea" sounds like it came straight from "The Tired Sounds of the Stars of the Lid" :eek: 😍

snagged one of the last copies today. PITP is having a great year.

There are 4 copies left at the Hospital Productions site of the Oxblood variant from Prurient's latest 2xLP ripper from Tesco, Casablanca Flamethrower. I think Hospital might be the only place you can get the Oxblood one stateside. There are black available there and elsewhere, and both editions are available direct from Tesco for my European friends.

Sooo, I found out about the "Everywhere at the end of time" album project from the caretaker this week after reading the NYT article about it. truth be told, I feel slightly embarrassed that I discovered this after it turned into a Tik-tok meme. but anyways, after looking into it and reading about it, I've hesitated from listening to the whole thing bc I don't think I could be able to digest the whole thing rn without getting anxious or feeling depressed.

anyone here listen to the whole thing by itself? what were your thoughts and experience coming from it??

Woah. Didn’t know there was a NYT article and now it’s a tik tok meme? Can you link to both? I’m interested.

I don’t know if it’s very depressing, a little bit but I like the project. Glad I have them all on LP.

first 3 volumes are really nice. It’s what The Caretaker does best IMO. Classic ballroom-esque music filtered through his special production to make it sound aged and broken. The next 3 volumes are pretty much a noise fest of just randomness and nothingness. I was little disappointed how quickly it shifted in sound from 3 to 4. I honestly couldn’t tell 4, 5, or 6 apart if you played them for me blind. They’re... fine. That sort of void noise is not really my cup of tea. Maybe someone else with more experience with harsh noise would be able to describe it better.

sure thing!!! here it is: Why Are TikTok Teens Listening to an Album About Dementia?

and I see. yea, eventually when I'll listen to it, I want to be in a good mindset. im not the biggest noise fan either, but I like some stuff like metal machine music. so I think I would like this probably, but it might be a one-time listen for me to see how it is, bc again, this is 6 hours long, it's not really something to be played on repeat, even by ambient/noise album standards.

Tbh I’ve never listened to the whole thing at once. I’d just chunk it up by each volume if you want. The last 3 volumes are very daunting. If you want to give your undivided attention... good luck. Having it on while you do something else is what I’d recommend.

A lot to unpack in this post!

Crazy, I had no idea about either the TikTok challenge or the NYT article about it. Thanks for posting about this.

Kirby’s work is interesting but challenging. I love An Empty Bliss but it doesn’t lend itself to repeated listenings. I’m less of a fan of the Everywhere At The End Of Time series — to me it’s an unpleasant sledgehammer. The music’s emotional intent and commentary on nostalgia and memory is more succinctly and elegantly delivered on An Empty Bliss.

Checking this one out at work. The list of albums underneath where it states: "The records below will give you an idea of the Outer Sounds we love…" is exactly along the lines of what Musique Plastique carried. They were my favorite record store (currently online only), and this might be a consideration to fill the gap until they get a new spot in Portland heading into the new year.

Thank you very much for this! Price is a tad iffy but might just do it. A few OT days at work should pay for a year.
