B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ 31 MARCH 2012

LA-based composer, arranger and performer Julia Holter has caught some critics attention with her new release, Ekstasis. And it's for a good reason: it's smart, inventive, and she has a unique delivery of dual vocals, looping and lo-fi tech instruments. One of my favorite releases to emerge this year - so far!
