Last year, Julia Holter brought us the recondite Tragedy, a record that communicated more in its silence and plaintive pace than many "louder" artists yield in a lifetime. Now Julia's continuing that trend, as evidenced not only on her upcoming record Ekstasis, but also on this tonalist sketch of an unreleased track entitled "Sharply White." Reference the video above, which documents Holter performing the piece last summer at Human Resources in LA, and the player below, which was posted today to Holter's Soundcloud.
Patient listening will be rewarded, and fast-forwarding to the pick-up point (no peeking at that waveform) is frowned upon.
