Nmesh curates 100-track tribute compilation to The Caretaker, proceeds to benefit The Alzheimer's Association

If last week’s new Caretaker installment and additional 16-song album weren’t enough to satisfy your Leyland Kirby fix, then how about 100 more Caretaker-related tracks?!? [wild applause] Nmesh, the plundering madman/genius who released one of our favorite records of 2017 in Pharma, has curated a massive compilation titled Memories Overlooked: A Tribute To The Caretaker. True to its title, the comp features over 90 artists who together pay tribute to Kirby’s six-part exploration of dementia, Everywhere at the end of time. Like that ongoing album, Memories Overlooked is “mixed and arranged in accordance with the advancement of the disease.”

According to Alex Koenig (a.k.a. Nmesh), “The project began as a compilation for the fans, by the fans — yet upon receiving numerous submissions from artists whose family members had battled with dementia, it seemed to take on a more meaningful purpose.” In addition to a track by Koenig himself, other artists on the comp include such TMT-friendly acts as Treasure Hunt, Ben Zimmerman, 猫シ Corp., Diamondstein, and many more.

The best part is that 100% of the digital proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association, a “voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.” And if you wanna show monetary support for the artists who made it all happen while also ensuring that the medium itself will deteriorate over time, complementing the digital release will be a limited-edition 4x cassette box set, which will be released via No Problema Tapes sometime before the end of the year.

Watch FookedonHonix’s trailer for Memories Overlooked: A Tribute To The Caretaker below, and look for the digital release October 27 via Bandcamp.
