Boomkat product review for:

luke abbott - Holkham Drones

Luke Abbott's debut album of Kosmische electronics is the best thing Border Community have released in years. Well, since Holden's 'The Idiots Are Winning, at the very least. It puts to use Abbott's beloved collection of boutique analogue equipment in 12 delicately structured and warmly effervescent arrangements ideal for intimate headphone and after-hours sessions. With roots in the gently rolling pastoral experiments of Cluster and antecedents also found in the brilliant Gavin Russom & Delia Gonzales album or acres of IDM from Isan to AFX and Wauvenfold, his music displays an intuitive mastery of his machines which can really only come from attentive, hands-on experience and an instinctive feel for lushly psychedelic melodies. Like the best of his ilk, his arrangements are anything but repetitious. Yeah, they're linear, but also constantly unfolding with a inviting and exploratory compositional awareness, like gazing out the window on a lush train ride to somewhere you've not visited before, but always wanted to. There's hints of BoC's harmonic wow and flutter peppered throughout, bubbling to the fore in the gorgeous 'Swansong', and 'Brazil', while the luscious 'Sirens For The Colour' hits the same Eldritchian sweet-spot as The Advisory Circle, but there's also a defined Teutonic element in the title track, like a drowning Kassem Mosse tune, or the trickling triplets of 'More Room'. Honestly, this music feels loved and cared for and should transmit the same feelings to anyone who encounters it. Highly Recommended.
