Noise Pop: Julia Holter at Swedish American Hall

Julia Holter (photo: Jon Bauer) Words by Annie Bacon “She’s an artist challenging herself,” fellow music writer Adrian Spinelli whispers to me as Julia Holter completes a stunning rendition of John Cage’s a cappella “Experience No 2.” The song — released in the late 1970s on Brian Eno’s short-lived Obscure Records — features lyrics by poet e. e. cummings and, between each verse, long silences that are neither breath, separation, nor distraction from the rest. The silences are a part of the song, perhaps the most impactful. And it was Julia Holter’s mastery of these silences that won me completely [...]

Circuit de Yeux supporting Julia Holter at The Chapel for sold out show

Photo by Julia Dratel With show season back in full swing, this weekend holds several intriguing live music options. If you're around The Mission on Sunday, a good bet would be to catch Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux opening for Julia Holter at The Chapel (that is, if you managed to snag tickets before they sold out). The two experimental songwriters are touring the U.S. together. Fohr's latest album as Circuit des Yeux, In Plain Speech, has been out since May 2015. According to her Bandcamp page, it is her first recording with a full band. The [...]

Live This Month: January 2016 — an audio guide to upcoming SF concerts

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/LTM_January_2016.mp3 Download: Live This Month: January 2016 (Podcast #378) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. This month's episode introduces some new local bands to our podcast, including the surf-pop of Spooky Mansion and psych-rock from Smokin' Ziggurats. We've also included a mid-podcast three-song set of local heaviness, including Sexless, Life Stinks, and Bosse-De-Nage. Life Stinks is one of two bands in this mix playing at SS15, a weekend of shows commemorating fifteen years of NorCal label Ss Records. Over its tenure, [...]

Julia Holter to play the Rickshaw Stop on Sunday, April 29

Julia Holter is a 27-year-old classical composer for the modern age — that is to say, with a pop sensibility. Her ethereal music appeals to the nerd in all of us, from the musicality, which includes dissonance that is, at times, evocative of Stravinsky, to the intertextuality at play that adds dimensions beyond the song’s aural elements. Tragedy, the aptly named debut album Holter released late in 2011, is structurally based on Hippolytus, a Greek play by Euripedes, and “Marienbad,” the first single off of Ekstasis, her just-released sophomore effort, is a nod to the highly acclaimed experimental French film [...]

Live This Month: April 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #276)

Live This Month: April 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #276) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. In curating this podcast, we got the nagging feeling that April is a little slow on the local album release front. We're not sure why that is -- Festival fatigue? Buildup for a big summer? -- but it's likely only a momentary blip. A number of exciting new Bay Area records are coming soon, and we're especially psyched about [...]
