JAMES HOLDEN & THE ANIMAL SPIRITS – 9.15pm
Let yourself be transported to a magical other world of instinct and intuition with this bold new set of synth-led folk-trance standards from electronics guru James Holden and his newly-expanded band of fellow travellers The Animal Spirits. A wild ride that unites the characteristic propulsive melodic vigour of his custom-made modular synthesizer system with an unlikely supporting cast of brass, wind and live percussion.
Holden has announced his third album recorded together with his newly-expanded band, going under the name James Holden & The Animal Spirits. The Animal Spirits will be released 3rd November via his own Border Community label.
The longest road is often most rewarding, and through Batkovic’s restless searching and anarchistic approach to accordion music, he’s carved his own place as an indefinable but intoxicating musical entity. His music criss-crosses between classical and contemporary, often featuring many classical cadences and harmonies, yet is also interlaced with less conventional sounds by using the instrument percussively and draws from minimalism. Hear the accordion as never before!
