Julia Holter - Aviary [Clear Vinyl] (LP)

Aviary [Clear Vinyl]
In Stock
Aviary is an epic journey through what Julia Holter describes as "€œthe cacophony of the mind in a melting world."€ 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.

"€œAmidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it's hard to find one's foundation,"€ says Holter. "€œI think this album is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person - how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace. Maybe it'€™s a matter of listening to and gathering the seeming madness, of forming something out of it and envisioning a future."

This limited edition double-LP format is pressed on clear vinyl, and is only available through independent shops such as ourselves.
