One year after live album In The Same Room, American singer-songwriter, producer and musician Julian Holter released a new album which she describes as “the cacophony of the mind in a melting world.” . Aviary is out now via Domino Records. We already shared a couple of tracks; now full streaming is available via Spotify. Listen below.
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. “Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it’s hard to find one’s foundation,” says Holter. “I 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.”
