Sometimes music has the ability to bring back memories-a longing for a past event that for some reason you have not been able to let go. Caretaker’s album, An Empty Bliss Beyond This World, does just that for me. There was a moment in Paris where we took cover under scaffolding-finding safety from the downpour that had begun shortly before. Within a few minutes something happened under that scaffolding. The thought of being soaked from the rain and being stuck suddenly vanished. I became more entranced at the shades of the clouds, the rain flowing across the street, and the quietness that had come over the city.
Take me back.
