Leyland Kirby

Just a little one for your bookmarks here – ambient iconoclast Leyland Kirby has put up a whole load of old material on Soundcloud for your perusal. As well as his two most recent albums as The Caretaker – the vinyl-hiss smothered soundtrack to Patience (After Sebald) and the 20’s ballroom fragments of An Empty Bliss Beyond This World – Kirby has furnished us with all three volumes of Intrigue & Stuff, a looser and more varied collection of 12″s that he released in 2011. Coming in at roughly 30 minutes each, the sets serve to encapsulate the mastery of different voices that have come to mark Kirby’s as totally unique; from the glacial majesty of Complex Expedition to the woozy 80’s pastiche of Lie Low, Pick Your Moment, there’s a whole afternoon’s worth of material to rediscover here.
