The WOW Files: HOLY OTHER Allows Free Streaming Of Their Brand New Mindblowing Album “Held”

by • August 21, 2012 • MusicComments (0)1476

Manchester master producer HOLY OTHER isn’t releasing his highly anticipated new album Held until August 27th, but earlier today he opened free streaming of all 9 tracks in their entirety.  It’s impressive to say the least, and could easily rank as one of my favorite albums of 2012 by the time December 31st rolls around.  Drowned In Sound has a terrific review of the album, and the following is a short excerpt: “Calling it ‘electronic music’ is, of course, a somewhat vague definition. The work of HOLY OTHER has been variously described, along with other releases on the Tri-Angle label, as dubstep, R&B, ambient and witch house. It’s somewhere between all these genres really (although I couldn’t tell you with any real confidence what constitutes ‘witch house’). Certainly it seems to share lineage with Burial’s atmospheric, late night travails, and there’s even some overlap with The Weeknd’s distinctive brand of creepy R&B.”  You can read the review in full by visiting DrownedInSound.com.  And for all things HOLY OTHER be sure to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and Soundcloud.
