Julia Holter | WIG297 | Released: 03/12/12
On December 3rd 2012, Domino will re-issue Ekstasis, the essential second album by Julia Holter. Hitherto only available in Europe via import since being released to phenomenal acclaim in North America earlier this year, the re-issue represents the first wide release of what is easily one of the most important, original and talked about albums to emerge from the American underground this decade.
The most fully-realised glimpse of Holter's steadily-developing, beautifully singular vision so far, Ekstasis follows on from the playful searching nature of 2007's home-recorded Eating The Stars EP and 2011's underground masterpiece Tragedy.
Ekstasis is an album that reflects both the conventions of Holter's extensive classical training and natural pop flair - as carefully considered from a compositional perspective as it is immediately affecting. Belonging on the same experimental pop spectrum as artists such as Arthur Russell and Laurie Anderson but nevertheless standing alone in its thrilling vision, it is a record that seeks to transcribe all of the beautiful, sweet mysteries of life.
