Julia Holter-Ekstasis (or “I’m not coming up with goofball titles for short posts like these”)

This is a fabulously breathy record.  Between sections of plucky pop and chamber electronica Holter is doing some breathing exercise style singing that makes her crystalline beats a lived in space. Here’s the best of the record. Goddess Eyes II which begins with her electronically coded voice peeling away till it’s just her. It should be too clever by half but her voice is just tender enough, just authentic enough, the chant so perfectly and simply constructed that she pulls it off.
