Out via Domino, ‘Aviary’ is the Los Angeles composer’s
most breathtakingly expansive album yet, full of
startling turns and dazzling instrumental
arrangements. The follow-up to her critically
acclaimed 2015 record, ‘Have You In My Wilderness’
(Mojo & Uncut’s Album Of The Year 2015).
Executively produced by Cole MGN and produced by
Holter and Kenny Gilmore, ‘Aviary’ combines Holter’s
slyly theatrical vocals and Blade Runner-inspired synth
work with an enveloping palette of strings and
percussion that reveals itself – and the boundless
scope of her vision – over the course of fifteen songs.
Holter was joined by Corey Fogel (percussion), Devin
Hoff (bass), Dina Maccabee (violin, viola, vocals),
Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet), Andrew Tholl (violin) and
Tashi Wada (synth, bagpipes).
