Back in print for the first time since 2010, James Leyland Kirby’s Persistent Repetition of Phrases stands as one of the highlights of his discography as The Caretaker. Originally released in 2008, this is arguably the first LP in which Kirby begins to nail down the aesthetic that eventually spawned his masterful An Empty Bliss Beyond This World. Focussing heavily on ideas of faulty memory and unreliable narration - track titles include ‘Past Life Regression’ and ‘Lacuna Amnesia’ - Kirby also eschews the largely synth-and-found-sound aesthetic of his early work for a focus on manipulation of loops. The result is a beautiful, haunting record in the same vein as William Basinski’s Disintegration Loops.
