Released: May 19th 2013 | REWIGCD87

Originally released in two runs of five hundred copies only on Los Angeles label Leaving Records in November 2011, Tragedy proved to be that year's most captivating, adventurous and inspired debut album and announced the arrival of a major new talent. Inspired by Euripides' Hippolytus, the sheer scope and scale of ambition evident in Tragedy's fifty minutes is staggering. Comprised of voice, synths, drum machines, piano, cello, saxophone, samples, vocoders, ensemble musicians and a chorus, Tragedy is a transcendental amalgamation of avant garde and pop conventions and of organic and electronic compositional forms - an entire universe of a record blessed with its own beautifully peculiar logic.With last year's successor Ekstasis welcoming even more adoring attention to Holter's unique vision and a new record scheduled for 2013, this timely re-issue of Tragedy on the format it was conceived for is essential for the long-seeking collector and newly converted alike.
