Have You In My Wilderness is Julia Holter’s most intimate album yet, a collection of radiant ballads. Her follow-up to 2013’s widely celebrated Loud City Song explores love, trust, and power in human relationships. While love songs are familiar fodder in pop music, Holter manages to stay fascinatingly oblique and enigmatic on her new album.

Have You in My Wilderness is also Holter’s most sonically intimate album. Here, she and producer Cole Marsden Greif-Neill lift her voice out of the layers of smeared, hazy effects, putting her vocals front and center in the mix. The result is striking—it sounds as if Holter is singing right in your ear. It sounds clear and vivid, but also disarmingly personal. The focused warm sound and instrumentation — dense strings, subtle synth pads — adds to the effect.

Like Holter’s previous albums, Have You in My Wilderness is multi-layered and texturally rich, featuring an array of electronic and acoustic instruments played by an ensemble of gifted Los Angeles musicians.

Have You In My Wilderness deals with dark themes, but it also features some of the most sublime and transcendent music Holter has ever written. The ten songs on the album are shimmering and dreamlike, wandering the liminal space between the conscious and the subconscious.
Hundred Waters
Hundred Waters
Hundred Waters’ members (Nicole Miglis, Trayer Tryon, Paul Giese, & Zach Tetreault) formed the group in 2012 when they became housemates in Gainseville, FL. The four found themselves inclined to collaboration while living under one roof, sharing a communal mentality that yielded a beautiful blend of musical contradictions: mournful yet colorful, introverted yet aware. Their self-titled debut soon attracted the most unlikely of allies, Skrillex, who signed the band to his OWSLA label that same year and gave the album a full-scale release, leading to worldwide touring with such diverse acts as The xx, Alt-J, Grimes, &Julia Holter.
Silent Drape Runners (DJ Set)
Silent Drape Runners are the Brooklyn-based "Lynchian pop" duo of Russ Marshalek + Sophie Weiner. After forming in October of 2011, they've shared bills with the likes of Pictureplane and Austra/TRUST's Maya Potepski.
