An astonishing seven years has elapsed since the release of James Holden’s milestone début album ‘The Idiots Are Winning’ in 2006, rightfully acclaimed in such quarters as The Guardian as “The most astonishing début in electronic music since Boards of Canada’s Music Has The Right To Children”.
In June 2013 Holden returned in a big way, with a brand new artist album of suitably epic proportions: 75 minute long English pagan saga ‘The Inheritors’. A bold, psychedelic journey, striking a delicate balance between weighty tome and transformative trip, and with a production aesthetic that is all his own: Holden is certain that this is the album that he always wanted to make.
The Inheritors live show is equally bold, with James’ synths joined by live drums and visuals.
“Holden’s ability to wrangle a complex synthesizer isn’t unique; his ability to make that skill seem utterly necessary, is.” Pitchfork
“Once upon a time, Holden used to bridge the gap between bedroom and club, but now the most suitable location to take in his music would be in the middle of the woods, a windswept moor or a stone circle. It’s the boldest of sonic statements” Quietus
