The third studio album from singular artist Julia Holter.
New album of avant-pop experimentation from the LA based singer / composer that blends influence ranging from Joni Mitchell to Arthur Russell and the poetry of Frank O’Hara into a daringly unique work as conceptually strong as it is immediately affecting.
‘Loud City Song’ follows, and progresses brilliantly from ‘Ekstasis’, one of last year’s most critically lauded records

Holter is no stranger to covers not least her glorious version of Fleetwood Mac's "Gold Dust Woman" which she effectively deconstructed on Mojo's "Rumours Revisited album". Here she tackles "Hello Stranger", a 1963 hit single by R&B singer Barbara Lewis. It is one of the best songs of career thus far.Read more ›
It's been some time since I've heard such a gentle and majestic opening to an album. The opening track, 'World', starts with just Julia singing and a very simple accompaniment. Some more instruments join in as the track goes on, such as strings, but it never fells busy. It always feels sparse. It feels exposed and there's plenty of blanks, and I think it's great to hear something that isn't a wall of noise. You get the feeling that Julia Holter doesn't want to hide, and that confidence comes through, but so does the beauty of it all.
'Maxim's I' starts with a kind of hiss before some organ chords break through, followed by Julia's voice. It's less sparse than the opening, and is a bit warmer, but no less emotional or confident.
'Horns Surrounding Me' has a darker, edgier feel. It has whispers and a relentless bassline. The vocals are also delivered much more sharply with very few sustained notes. To say this is experimental would be an understatement.
'In The Green Wild' has an edgy bass riff that's accompanied by some rapid-fire vocals. You're never sure what the next track is going to bring until you listen to it, and that's one of the great things about this album. There's a track for every mood, and although it might take you a couple of listens to get the whole thing, it sure is worth it.Read more ›

Julia has an amazing voice and much of her music I found to be good. My taste is for something more mainstream though and, while I found this CD good, I would not rush out and buy... Read morePublished on 1 Oct. 2014 by Nicola
