This has been a dark couple of days for TND. I'm sick and nothing seems to be tickling my fancy at the moment. All the 'meh' music keeps coming and coming and coming. But I think I've found an album I like: Luke Abbott's Holkham Drones.
Luke is a musician from the UK whose synth-worshipping ways straddle the accessible and the experimental. Numerous tracks on his new LP--including the one above--feel like messy relics from house music's humble beginnings. It's densely layered and deeply entrancing as well. This will probably get a review tomorrow.-
