Not only my favourite tune on the last Julia Holter record, but also the track giving me the chills while hearing it live (and before the album release.) So, this one gives you a slight impression of that feeling, a live version of “Hello Stranger”, a cover of the 1963 Barbara Lewis hit single, recorded during rehearsals.
The album Loud City Song was released in 2013 on Domino Records.
Based on a concept by Ramona Gonzales (aka Nite Jewel) and directed by Angus Borsos, this new video by Julia Holter reminds a lot of a David Lynch movie and its symbolisms. That said, fans of Mulholland Drive might recognize the balcony from the movie’s Silencio scene. “Horns Surrounding Me” is taken from Loud City Song, her album released last summer on Dominio.

After a busy week and a rather annoying day, this new Julia Holter song is giving me the peace I was looking for a the end of a long day. Apparently, that’s the first single taken from her forthcoming album Loud City Song on Domino Records. Quite a journey since her debut on Leaving Records, but I’ve always impressed by her doings. The new one is still a bit away, August 19th is the day of release!
