'Loud City Song' is the new studio recording by Los Angeles based artist Julia Holter, out 19th August 2013. The album is Holter’s third full length release in as many years – following 2011’s groundbreaking debut 'Tragedy' and last year’s follow-up, the critically lauded 'Ekstasis'.
'Loud City Song' have origins that pre-date 2011’s debut Tragedy – coaxed out and finessed as demos in Holter’s bedroom studio and then finally coalesced into one thrillingly cohesive experience in the latter stages of 2012 by Holter and co-producer Cole Marsden Grief-Neill and an ensemble of Los Angeles musicians. The result is an album of enormous ambition – Holter taking inspiration from Collette’s 1944 novella Gigi and using it as a prism through which to explore her relationship with her hometown of Los Angeles and modern life universally, taking cues from the work of Joni Mitchell and the poetry of Frank O’Hara but forging those touch-points into something resolutely unique.
Paracosm was recorded by Ernest Greene with returning producer Ben Allen in Athens and Atlanta, Georgia. Exploring the album’s namesake phenomenon where people create detailed imaginary worlds, the concept has been used to describe fantasy lands like Tolkien’s Middle Earth and C.S. Lewis’ Narnia. The idea of escaping is the main thrust behind the music, which finds Greene distancing himself from the modes and methods that informed Washed Out’s previous recordings. No, he hasn’t thrown away his computer or synths, but Greene made a conscious decision to expand his sonic palette, which resulted in the employment of more than 50 different instruments, the most significant of which turned out to be old keyboards like the Mellotron, Chamberlin, Novatron, and Optigan.
