Holy Other releasing debut LP (stream a track), playing shows
by Andrew Sacher
Manchester producer Holy Other released one of the finest EPs of 2011 with the With U EP, and he just announced that he'll follow it with his debut full length this year, which is titled Held. The album's out August 28 via Tri Angle, who also released his EP. The first taste is a new track titled "Love Some1" which is rooted in the same type of Burialesque bass, snaps, and pitch shifted vocals that made his EP so great, and this track is no exception. Stream it below, along with the album's tracklist.
Holy Other was supposed to make his way over to the states last year but had to cancel due to illness and never ended up doing so. Now he's once again got plans to head over to our side of the Atlantic, and assuming all goes well, he'll make his US live debut at PS1's Warm Up on September 8. That one's the final show of the series and it's got an especially stacked lineup with Thom Yorke's Atmos for Peace (DJ), Rustie (who we've written about HERE), Maria Minerva (who we've written about HERE and HERE) and Justin Strauss. Tickets for Warm Up go on sale June 18.
