(Self Sabotage Records)
One of Austin’s best classical & experimental cellists Randall Holt shares the first track from his forthcoming solo album via Ghost Cult Magazine. Hear “I Felt Safe Again and Was At Home” below.
Randall Holt is a member of Knest (with Thor Harris & Jonathan Horne) and Horne + Holt. Randall has also played in Reverend Glasseye and has collaborated with a wide range of artists including Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Yann Tiersen, Eric McFadden Trio and jazz composer Adam Rudolph.
Recorded with Chico Jones at Ohm Recording Facility in Austin TX, Inside The Kingdom of Splendor and Madness is an evocative & emotive cello showcase, lulling you in with “I felt safe again and was at home” into the howling strings of “Wandering: Mountain pass”; continuing the tension-and-release of an epic journey, each song a chapter from Holt’s cinematic imagination, drawing to the inevitable yet joyfully prolonged ending of a fond goodbye in “Bid Farewell, Without End!”
Originally released digitally in March 2016, the album will be available on cassette and CD on Friday, April 20th, 2018 via Self Sabotage Records. Pre-orders are available at selfsabotagerecords.bigcartel.com
