Caroline K

Now Wait For Last Year

Label: Blackest Ever Black

Format: LP

Out of stock

First ever vinyl reissue of Caroline K's outstanding 1985 album, Now Wait For Last Year. This haunting, wistful work of post-industrial synthesizer music - the late Nocturnal Emissions co-founder's only solo record - has accrued a fervent cult following over the past 30 years, and copies of the original pressing are today extremely sought-after. Tags like industrial, minimal synth or proto-techno can't really do justice to the richly cinematic sound-world that Caroline Kaye Walters, aka Caroline K, describes as "from the sustained ambient tension of sidelong opener 'The Happening World' to the future-primitive rhythms and stately piano flourishes of 'Animal Lattice', and the melancholic, deep-frozen synth sequences of 'Chearth'." Fans of Wendy Carlos's A Clockwork Orange, Chris Carter's The Space Between, and early Detroit techno should pay special attention, but this searching, future-proof masterpiece demands to be heard by all.
