Hot Jam of the Day (07.16.12): Holy Other, “Held”

Holy Other
“Held”
Held (TriAngle)

Of the many things I love about Holy Other, I think my favorite thing about him is his incredible use of vocals. In recent times, nobody has been able to touch Burial’s ability to use broken up vocal samples to tell affecting, fully-formed stories, but this Mancunian is getting closer. His music has always worked in movements, and like much of his best work (especially Held‘s first single, “Love Some1”), “Held” resolves itself in a stunning final stanza that packs an emotional wallop. Its punch is largely due to its undulating, suffocating vocals. It’s just about a month until we get to hear his debut LP in its entirety, and I cannot wait.
