James Holden & The Animal Spirits
Electronics guru James Holden and his newly-expanded band The Animal Spirits finished off 2017 with the release of Holden’s third album The Animal Spirits . A wild ride that unites the propulsive, melodic vigour of his custom-made modular synthesizer system with an unlikely supporting cast of brass, wind and live percussion, the psychedelic journey of The Animal Spirits is certainly Holden’s most ambitious work to date. This one-time international DJ has now officially hung up his headphones to turn his attention to setting a new standard for interconnected live electronic performance, as he gears up to take his new five-piece musical collective out on the road. His stop in Ballinlough is something we’re very excited for.
