Boomkat Product Review:
James Holden’s Dan Ashcroft-channelling 2006 debut LP resurfaces, trimmed down and cut on a fancy new pressing.
Issued in the wake of label mate Nathan Fake’s classic ‘Drowning In A Sea of Love’ (and only a year after the original screening of Nathan Barley aka the birth of modern culture), Holden’s debut album helped to sweetly establish the Border Community aesthetic with its woozy blends of oil-colour synths and supple, minimalist tech-house and electronica rhythms.
For longterm fans of Holden, Border Communioty, or lovers of romantic, cosmic, modern dance music who haven’t heard it yet, ‘The Idiots Are Winning’ now feels like a fine throwback to an innocent era when it seemed like everyone had a floppy emo fringe, a Myspace page, and dangerously tight trews.
