1_Julia Holter_Basilica Soundscape 2014

I finally got to catch a live show from Julia Holter last night at Basilica Soundscape, and the special atmosphere that the abandoned factory of Basilica Hudson provided seemed to be as ideal a setting as any.

Holter’s set was an otherworldly journey of shared fragility that was both dreamy and haunting, sometimes both. While she sometimes performs live with other musicians, last night’s set was solo with just her and her keyboard. It was all she needed to dazzle and delight the audience, often making it feel as though time had slowed down completely as she was playing, leaving you with enough to time truly take it all in.

She performed a selection of material from last year’s Loud City Song, with some variation thrown in there for good measure. Below, take in her recently released new single “Don’t Make Me Over.” You can also find more photos from her set.
