Luke Abbott announces details of new album
Luke Abbott has announced details of his second album for Border Community. Wysing Forest will be released on 23 June 2014.
The slow-burning success of his 2010 debut album Holkham Drones has continued to win over convert upon convert. His handcrafted hardware-jams rumbled across the clubs, gigs and festivals of Europe throughout the intervening years.
The follow-up to his two EPs for Gold Panda‘s label NOTOWN (Object is Navigator and Modern Driveway), Wysing Forest is named after the Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire where, over a six week period in 2012 as their first ever musician-in-residence, Luke recorded what would later become the album.
“The record is mostly made up of live recordings explains Luke. Some were recorded at a performance at Wysing in front of a very small audience and some were recorded in a temporary studio I had setup during my residency.
