Rich, expansive musicality!! Each week I got another favourite composition :-p Structures are less song-oriented than in the previous record and still, the whole thing flows rather smoothly. It's a magnificent collection of tunes.
Julia did it again. Favorite track: Whether.

Michael Mueller A high-water mark for an exceptional artist, Holter has created a suite to rival the best of Kate Bush.

This is ecstatic music; the sound of the human spirit in full flight. Orchestral swoops, voice soaring, structures and modalities that dizzy with their richness.

Holter's music has the sense of liberation and feminine expression one hears in the music of Alice Coltrane.

I think it time will reveal this to be one of the albums of the decade. Favorite track: Chaitius.

about

Aviary is an epic journey through what Julia Holter describes as “the cacophony of the mind in a melting world.” Out on October 26th via Domino, it’s the Los Angeles composer’s most breathtakingly expansive album yet, full of startling turns and dazzling instrumental arrangements.

The follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2015 record, Have You in My Wilderness, it takes as its starting point a line from a 2009 short story by writer Etel Adnan: "I found myself in an aviary full of shrieking birds." It’s a scenario that sounds straight out of a horror movie, but it’s also a pretty good metaphor for life in 2018, with its endless onslaught of political scandals, freakish natural disasters, and voices shouting their desires and resentments into the void

Aviary, executive produced by Cole MGN and produced by Holter and Kenny Gilmore, combines Holter's slyly theatrical vocals and Blade Runner-inspired synth work with an enveloping palette of strings and percussion that reveals itself, and the boundless scope of her vision, over the course of fifteen songs. Holter was joined by Corey Fogel (percussion), Devin Hoff (bass), Dina Maccabee (violin, viola, vocals), Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet), Andrew Tholl (violin), and Tashi Wada (synth, bagpipes).
