Holkham Drones by Luke Abbott
Released: Aug 2010
Label: Border Community
It's hard to imagine a more perfect label than Border Community for Norfolk, England's Luke Abbott; his delicately convoluted synthesizer music obviously takes after Border Community founder James Holden as well as longtime signees like Nathan Fake. But don't dismiss this as coloring within the lines: Abbott's music is as original as it is colorful, with warbling analog synthesizers tangling up in knots around trim drum programming. He's got a knack for tricky, three-against-four rhythms, and his counterpoints suggest baroque complexity. A spellbinding debut album.
