That's California singer and songwriter Julia Holter, talking to Pitchfork recently. This passage from the interview leapt out at me because it gets at what makes her second full-length album special. Like a lot of home-recorded music in the indie sphere in the last few years, Ekstasis makes heavy use of atmosphere. There's plenty of reverb and vocal tracks are braided together into drones; it's the kind of swirly production that's good for hiding mistakes. But nothing Holter does feels random. Listening to Ekstasis, I keep thinking about how it differs from music that feels superficially similar. The music of Julianna Barwick, for example, has liturgical overtones, bringing to mind stone and glass and voices rising in cathedrals. Barwick wants to tap into something beyond words. But Holter's music sounds like it was assembled in a dusty library a floor or two below the sanctuary.
Julia Holter - Ekstasis Though technically her fifth studio album, last year's Tragedy on Leaving Records found diffuse-pop chanteuse Julia Holter finally stretching beyond the embrace of CD-R fetishism into the realms of experimental pseudo-celebrity. Though it wasn't necessarily a leap from the reclining textures and ed take on ambient-pop music of her past, there were newly notable hints at more conventional songcraft and hooks that made it seem a somewhat novel approach to past work

Julia Holter second album, Ekstasis, is a collection of songs written and recorded across the span of three years in Los Angeles, California. Holter's songwriting stems from a mythological reverence of that which is incomprehensibly beautiful.
Julia Holter’s second album Ekstasis explores a less conceptually themed, but by no means less fantastical purpose to last year’s breakthrough debut Tragedy, a re-interpretation of Euripides’ Hippolytus. Interestingly, despite the wide time in which they were constructed, these songs all sit perfectly alongside each other as a collection, as if magnetized.
Though Julia Holter was part of a wave of young one-woman-band electronic artists to emerge in the early '10s, hers is a singular style. Her second album, Ekstasis, was one of 2012's most entrancing musical moments. Holter's eclectic background includes everything from folk to modern classical, and Ekstasis is similarly syncretic. Echoes of '80s pop, ambient electronics, chillwave/dream-pop, and more can be discerned echoing through its corridors, all informed by a willingness to move in experimental directions unbound by idiomatic constrictions.
Julia Holter's Ekstasis album is released next week. Follow up to last year's Tragedy, it's one of 2012's more interesting records so far and is beginning to whip up a fair bit of anticipation. A contemporary and friend of Ariel Pink and Nite Jewel's Ramona Gonzalez, on the surface Holter's music cleverly melds current and traditional folk forms with modern compositional techniques and electronics
