James Holden & The Animal Spirits
The Animal Spirits

I’m gonna go ahead and say it: this album is tied with Kara-Lis Coverdale’s Grafts as my record of the year. James Holden’s brand of frolicking electronic sound has always been a favourite of mine, but upon hearing that he’s got some buddies involved the excitement was hard to conceal. So really, this amazing flu...view item »

James Holden & Camilo Tirado / Luke Abbott
Outdoor Museum of Fractals / 555Hz

Despite the vastness of the internet, it seems that nowhere exists to provide more than a sneak peek at this new Border Community thing. Their website offers a mildly generous 2 min clip for each side of this, so brace yourself for the smallest glance over ever. It sounds pretty great. Ok you can have some more: the LP is a split...view item »

Rocketnumbernine
Two Ways

Following on from being Neneh Cherry’s backing band for her last album and tour (yeah, really), Rocketnumbernine head back to their original duo activities. Produced by James Holden, Two Ways is a pair of improvised live jams, wild drums and cosmic synths matching each other perfe...view item »

Luke Abbott
Wysing Forest

Border Community is a proper survivor of a label. To survive you need to adapt. Epic tech-house club bangers are all very well and good but you gotta keep things fresh and crispy innit. Label chief Holden surprised many with the relatively un-dancefloor friendly aspects of his brilliant kosmische-kissed 'Inheritors'....view item »

Holden
The Inheritors

Ever since our office promo of the new Holden album turned up it’s never been too far from the office stereo, since it’s one of the rare records that everyone here can agree on - a lengthy voyage of finely detailed analogue synths, stumbling beats and occasionally surprising instrumentation (check...view item »

Luke Abbott
Holkham Drones

Despite what the title suggests, this collection would be far more aptly titled 'Holkham beats', though I don't really know what 'Holkham' has to do with it, and calling something 'beats' or, 'non place-specific beats' is a truly terrible name. This is a collection much in the vein of fellow border community artists James 'Holden' ...view item »

Nathan Fake
Paean

Electronica dude Nathan Fake is a popular man in the Norman office, with both Phil and Brian singing his praises enthusiastically when he last album dropped, so I’m curious to see what all the fuss is about here because I’m a bit backward wh...view item »

Nathan Fake
Steam Days

I recall us Normaners being bang into 'Drowning In A Sea Of Love' several years back, it fitted beautifully into that post IDM glut of hugely melodic, astoundingly layered yet deceptively simple and atmospheric 4am music such as Julian Fane a...view item »

Kate Wax
Dust Collision

Upon first listen, the album reminds me of a darker, mellower, less dancefloor friendly version of Lida Husik's Faith In Space (even down to the similar record covers) Yet the combination of Wax's vocals (which sounds very similar to that gal from The Knife) and subtle hints of guitar and piano take Dust Collision into a darker place. Dust Colli...view item »
