Live in Concert

Julia Holter In Concert

Julia Holter's music is hard to pin down. Last year's Tragedy came out of nowhere with a new, fully formed sound world — a moody and enveloping ambient record that ached for more. But with Ekstasis, she blurs the line between composer and songwriter, between ambient and pop, much like Arthur Russell or Laurie Anderson. Even so, when Holter played her first-ever public New York City concert at Le Poisson Rouge, she and cellist Chris Votek had a moment of levity as the two essentially transformed the dreamy "Moni Mon Amie" into a torch song at the baby grand piano. Watch Holter turn pop music inside out in her first-ever New York City performance, recorded live from Le Poisson Rouge.
