James Holden Announces New Album with The Animal Spirits
The ever eccentric electronic maestro James Holden will release a brand new LP later this year.
Holden had been rather quiet since 2013’s The Inheritors but the Border Community boss will make his comeback when he releases James Holden & The Animal Spirits on November 3rd.
For those not aware then The Animals Spirits is the collective term for his newly-expanded band of “fellow travellers” assembled to feature on the record. The group of collaborators are made up of long-term studio partners Tom Page and Etienne Jaumet as well as Marcus Hamblett, Liza Bec and Lascelle Gordon.
According to a press release, the James Holden & The Animal Spirits is set to explore Holden’s newfound love of Morocco’s Gnawa trance tradition, “repackaging the brash tones of pure trance into the accommodating spiritual jazz band format”.
