Julia Holter is one of the most singular artists to emerge from the groundswell of independent music in America. A Los Angeles composer who melds avant-pop and the art-song tradition, Julia Holter's music is ambitious, yet intimate, described by Pitchfork as "bedroom pop made by somebody with pin-ups of Heidegger, Virginia Woolf and Laurie Anderson papering the walls". Julia Holter's lush new album for Domino, Loud City Song, is one of the most universally critically acclaimed records this year. It's her third full length release in as many years – following 2011’s groundbreaking debut Tragedy and last year’s follow-up, the critically lauded Ekstasis. Loud City Song is both a continuation and a furthering of the fiercely singular and focused vision displayed by its predecessors, taking as it does Julia Holter’s rare gift for merging high concept, compositional prowess and experimentation with pop sensibility and applying it to a set of even more daringly beautiful arrangements and emotionally resonant songs. Julia Holter first toured Australia as a trio for Laneway Festival 2013 and now returns as a five piece, her extraordinary vocals and keyboards accompanied by cello, violin, sax and drums.

Very special guest for Julia Holter's return Australian tour is Ducktails, aka Brooklyn-based Matthew Mondanile in exquisite solo performance mode. Ducktails traffics in the spaced-out pop songs one might discover in out-of-the-way thrift stores or deep in bins of 1970s private-press records—a casually sophisticated, genre-eluding pop ambience that contrasts with, yet echoes, the music Matt plays in the indie group Real Estate. Ducktails recently released Wish Hotel, a 12" EP to follow up to this year's acclaimed Ducktails album The Flower Lane, both on Domino Records. The five songs, recorded by Matt at his home in Ridgewood, New Jersey, engage with themes of travel, love, and longings. Having performed in hallowed spaces around the world such as the Whitney Museum of American Art and MoMA PS1, the woozy, mellow psychedelia of Ducktails is a treat to behold.

PRAISE FOR LOUD CITY SONG by JULIA HOLTER (Domino Records, 2013)
