Amoeba Newsletter Sign Up. Julia Holter's first LP-- an album of distant, breathy voices; grainy sound collages; and heavy atmosphere with nearly no release-- is a record committed to itself as a project, one that calls to mind the arty, austere work of Laurie Anderson, Grouper, and Meredith Monk. It's almost unfortunate that Tragedy -- an album of distant, breathy voices; grainy sound collages; and heavy atmosphere with nearly no release-- came out now, in lateif for no other reason that it sounds so contemporary.
Younger bands making cool underground music have become goth-curious for the first time in probably 20 years, and the tendency to filter all "pop" hooks through the funhouses mirrors of "avant-garde" production techniques is so commonplace that clarity -- a voice spared from way too much reverb, for example-- has become the exception instead of the rule.
Tragedy -- Julia Holter 's first full-length-- is one of "those records," but it's also more: more sonically detailed, more attentive to its compositions, and more clever and varied about its use of grayscale. Holter isn't just holding a Russian icon painting in the air and cranking the echo. In turn, it's LP record with more integrity than a lot of its peers, a record committed to itself as a project but also exemplary as a summary of several trends in contemporary underground music now.
If "integrity" sounds like an old-fashioned argument, well, it is. Julia Holter. Walmart Add to list. Add to registry. Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download.
