Okay, so this will need some context. Back in 1999, British musician Leyland Kirby adopted a new pseudonym, The Caretaker. His work explored the mind, memory and the deterioration of it. His early work explored haunting ballroom samples buried under a dense layer of crackle and fog. It harked back to a time you never thought you'd lived through, but there was something familiar about it. This was all well and good and might have brushed off as nothing but an exercise in crate digging until 2016, where Leyland revealed that his character of The Caretaker had developed dementia. From then, his work reflected this, exploring the themes of Alzheimer's through-out a six album course, beginning with the first part Everywhere At The End Of Time Stage 1. Things quickly fell apart as far as structure was concerned, and the series came to a stunning conclusion earlier this year. Kirby has since retired The Caretaker as a character, signifying death, or what he calls "bliss". The first video is stage 1, and the second video is stage 6.
Any James Blake song 😂😂😂
Love him as an artist though, he's like perfection in anything he does, so props for that, but yeah, his music is very depressing. Same with Joy Division, a band I love, but their music was very sad
For me this song, because it is the song that represents breakup with my first real love of my life.
I cried to this song for three days straight.
As much as I adore them, a lot of songs by My Dying Bride. BUT, only if I am already severely depressed. Usually, I attempt to use music to lift me out of being depressed. But, they have some songs where within 60 seconds, I am a sobbing wreck.
The Doctor's Wife by The Clockwork Quartet
This is also one of the scariest songs I know of too.
The disintegration loops are pretty depressing, given they were made on September 11th as the maker watched the towers burn down from his apartment. But they are hauntingly beautiful. Basically it's a loop that plays on old tape until the tape literally disintegrates and you here it all in the audio, the destruction.
Another of my favorite sad songs.
Band: KoЯn / Track: Alone I Break / Album: Untouchables / Year: 2002
Probably not the first to post this.
This song angers me in ways I never thought possible.
Taste is subjective and all tha...blah blah blah sh*te.
Favorite track from pr0nography.
24 minutes in is very bleak but amazing
