Holden & Zimpel

Long Weekend

Border Community

Released: 6th March 2020

12"£13.99Out of Stock


UK synth wizard James Holden teams up with Polish clarinet guru Waclaw Zimpel for a four track EP of deliciously krauty improvisations, recorded back in the summer of 2018 when Zimpel (and on 'Tuesday' and 'Wednesday' his longtime collaborator guitarist Jakub Ziolek) joined Holden in his London studio for a series of musical experiments, with the goal of completing one track per day.​

The resultant 'Long Weekend EP' is a captivating in-the-moment lyrical conversation between alto clarinet and modular synth, judiciously supplemented by guitar, organ, voice and assorted percussion and glued together with atmospheric syrupy tape overdubs.​

A meeting of two like-minded masters of their instrument, whose disparate musical journeys now converge in a shared love of all things hypnotic and trancey.
