I haven’t written about Julia Holter and her latest album ‘Have You In My Wilderness’ much this year. Which worries me – you might think I don’t like it, or that I was ignoring her because the quality of her output has started to dip. I’m sure you were busy wondering about all that. You were, right? Right. Oh. Well, anyway, I do like it and the quality of her output has far from dipped. So now you know.

‘Have You In My Wilderness’ is an impressive album among a catalogue of consistently impressive albums. So it’s a close call, but I think it’s probably nearer the top of the list of her best work than the bottom.

Need an example? Well, just yesterday she put out the video for ‘Silhouette’, a song which perfectly displays her ability to delicately arrange instruments so that it sounds like they’re floating. Her voice then orbits this cloud of music like a bird.

Oh, and have you seen her live? You should totally do that. Luckily, she’s just announced some UK and Ireland tour dates for next February too.
