Amoeba Review

Matt 11/27/2013

Master conceptualist Leyland Kirby (The Caretaker/V/VM ) puts forth a moody requiem for Western hegemony. The music maintains the gauzy ephemerality of the much lauded Caretaker project, but instead of nostalgic/creepy ballroom music, the chassis for The Stranger is a bleak rhythmic skeleton. At certain points, the music draws from the percussive techniques of industrial forbears, such as on the optimistic Where Are Our Monsters Now, Where Are Our Friends. About to Enter a Strange New Period has Kirby in a reflective mode - the meandering synthetic horns are somewhat reminiscent of Popol Vuh.
