Cinematic jazz-pop with ambient leanings. Live studio session of Julia Holter and co., with tracks containing a strong representation from her previous excellent full-length, Have You in My Wilderness. It doesn’t seem to deviate too much from the album recordings, which is a testament to how great she and her band are at recreating their music live. Highly recommend seeing them if you get the chance.|
