About

Julia Holter's passion? Shocking herself and shocking us. Her first album, Tragedy, painted pictures of ethereal lands with infinite horizons. Ekstasis, with its superb opening number (Marienbad), was an attempt to restore some structural logic to a writing style that was moving more towards explorations of the unknown. She succeeded in re-finding this logic with 2013's Loud City Song which remains the shortest and most balanced of her albums. Five years later, Holter is done striving: she wants to have fun. Aviary, a very odd album, takes us on a breathless tour through all the important influences that have fed Julia Holter's creativity, from Renaissance polyphony and minimalism to modern and classical orchestration. These tracks seem to change like the wind in terms of structure, like clouds filled with crazy and beautiful contrasts which she’d never thought of before. Chaitius starts off like an Elizabethan In Nomine with various modern reorchestrations suddenly superimposed upon it.

Is this pop music? Really? Suddenly, with a whisper, Julia Holter's voice whisks us off to a kind of cabaret: more urbane, but still pretty crazy – instruments on fire, keyboards gone wrong, and all the while with rampant, obsessive polyphony! Just where are we exactly? The next number won't help you at all in figuring it out, because all of a sudden we're in a Habanera dream with Voce Simul. Hispanic sounds, diffused light and instrumentation, and a voice covered in sensuality (even when a toybox, presumably the same as we hear in Marienbad, threatens to derail the vibe). The following track, Everyday Is an Emergency, starts with a mess of screeching whistles and horns before our artist steps forward to play the role of liberator, bringing a shining message of peace and love. It's breathtaking! And this is only the stat of the journey... And how could we not mention the revisited Sprechgesang which is Colligere? Strange, flighty, generous: perhaps Julia Holter has finally found her true calling, she certainly still has a keen mind. This is a must listen. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

In 1997 Domino released Pavement's landmark commercial breakthrough Brighten The Corners which was followed a year later by Elliot Smith's Either/Or  and in 1999 the debut album by Will Oldham as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - I See Darkness: a series of albums that confirmed the label's reputation as the preeminent European home of American music. Bell's desire to work with British bands as innovative and singular as his American artists reached fruition in the late nineties with the signings of Four Tet, Clinic, James Yorkston and The Kills.    All were acts with a distinct identity that established Domino as a label interested in creativity rather than in any particular ...
