On her magnificent fourth LP, Julia Holter wrote in fragments that continue to capture intrigue despite rarely arriving anywhere definite. Destinations are simply not the object of this record: it is a heavenly, drifting journey that weaves elegantly through elements of art and dream pop. The beautifully judged production enables the instrumentation to take on a gossamer quality without any fear of being torn apart. To make music ornate and weightless is a near-impossible task that requires immaculate execution. HYIMW could so easily have been made watery and docile by half-baked ideas. Instead, it arrives completely and with a singular, moving voice.
A favourite: ‘Vazquez’
