Julia Holter

Since Julia Holter's 2011 breakthrough Tragedy, all of her albums have been a sonic shift from the last, and her upcoming Have You In My Wilderness might be her best yet. It's her biggest sounding album to date and Julia's voice is pushed more to the forefront than ever, but the songs are no less intimate and eccentric than her previous material. Most songs have gorgeous string arrangements and there seems to be a bit of a '60s baroque pop influence this time around, whether it's the keyboards in lead singles "Feel You" and "Sea Calls Me Home" or the upbeat, whimsical "Everytime Boots." The jazz influences she brought in on Loud City Song aren't gone either, as she especially proves on the swirling penultimate track "Vasquez." It's a very diverse record, and you can now hear the whole thing below, via NPR.

The album officially comes out next week (9/25) via Domino. Next month, Julia begins a tour that has her in NYC on October 24 at Rough Trade (tickets).
