Julia Holter |
“A work of transcendent pop beauty that finally explains the idea of 'ekstasis' by leaving the listener beside themselves, in a state of rapturous joy.”—Mojo
With her sophomore release, Ekstatis, Californian singer/songwriter Julia Holter has cemented the acclaim that she first triggered with Tragedy, her debut. Both releases signal Holter as a special artist who aspires to stretch boundaries with innovative song craft and literate lyrical references. (Have you heard anyone else lately who quotes Euripides, Virginia Woolf, and Frank O'Hara with unpretentious intelligence and ease?) The finely etched sonic atmospheres that support her voice evoke both Laurie Anderson and Julianna Barwick.
The haunting folktronica of Hundred Waters, from Florida, provides a complementary prelude to this special concert.
