The Caretaker’s An Empty Bliss Beyond this World is a big, sweeping title for an instrumental album that’s equally magnificent, not to mention time-warpy.

As you might expect, the songs are also wordily, weightily titled: “Pared Back to the Minimal,” “A Relationship with the Sublime,” “Mental Caverns Without Sunshine.” But the sound is quite the opposite: An Empty Bliss feels old, faraway and romantic, the aural equivalent of delicate yellowed papers and photographs. Phonograph crackles abound, along with plinky quasi-honky-tonk piano. No one makes music like this! Instant love.

The curious bit is that the songs, and the artist’s name, are both inspired by Kubrick’s The Shining — a tidbit that lends it all a psycho-killery edge. But don’t let that deter you — scary movie this is not. More like lazy weekendy.
