Border Community Inhabits Brown Alley
Owned by James Holden and run with the intent of pushing into the mainstream the best of leftfield, experimental electronica, Border Community is a haven for those of us who appreciate forward-thinking sounds, seeking shelter from the cliched and boring.
Australians will finally have a chance to catch some of Border Community’s rising stars for a night, and the trio that have been assembled are an ideal set of leaders into the unknown. After the release of his stellar debut LP Holkham Drones in 2010, Norfolk’s Luke Abbott is more than ready to bring the warm, immersive sounds of his debut to the live arena. Canada’s ex-indie kid and electronica veteran Fairmont, currently readying an eagerly-anticipated follow-up album to 2007’s dreamy Coloured in Memory. Acid house obsessive Avus rounds off the lineup, with extensive experience as both an acclaimed DJ and live performer guaranteeing that whatever he comes down to Melbourne with, it’ll be grand. What a crew!
Catch the Border Community when they take over Brown Alley on Friday March 23.
