HOLDEN - The Caterpillar's Intervention

Lately I've been listening to James Holden again. Maybe it's because of ADE, but it made me realise that all of my personal heroes are together in one city for one week playing at their best. Except for Holden. 

After ADE I always want to listen to the best or most intense music I have. You can listen to house, techno or whatever but there's nothing quite as intense as Holden's latest album The InheritorsI've posted two tracks from his album already here and here

The album is 75 minutes in length and if you've never had a listening experience before and you're curious, you should definitely give it a go. Just press play and try to do as little as possible. Holden really demands your full attention and if you give it to him I guarantee you, it'll be something special.

"The Caterpillar's Intervention" is the fourth track on the album and it sounds to me like an epic introduction of what's about to come. The way the saxophone joins the party adds to the buildup perfectly. It gave me goosebumps the first time. But what really blew my mind was that free jazz solo near the ending. It just walks the thin line called sanity and yet it never sounds like it's out of control.
