Remember how to love? No, none of us do. Love is over. I miss it. Perhaps you too miss it. Ever since “the event,” this massive Earth has lacked warm feeling, along with true affection. But, let me tell you a little bit about a little something my mother liked to call hope. One man can return love to this land, one man can repair our shattered hearts. That man is Leyland Kirby with a new EP, ironically titled Breaks My Heart Each Time.
As reported by self-titled, the new EP will be out February 17 through Apollo Records (the ambient division of R&S). Though he’s put heart-restoring material out as The Caretaker and The Stranger in recent years, Breaks My Heart Every Time will mark his first material under his own name since 2011’s Intrigue & Stuff series. In keeping with Kirby’s inclination to making his music actually about, you know, actual stuff, man, the EP consists of “subtle personal reflections upon his roots in rave and acid house in the UK.” I, too, like to reflect upon the halcyon days of rave and acid house in the UK. Back then, love was alive.
