As summer comes to a close and the sun sets a little sooner on us all Julia Holter is preparing to release her fourth studio album Have You In My Wilderness. The timing I’d love to believe is one of those serendipitous things, her classic and timeless brand of Americana folk settling onto my shoulders like the sweaters I’ll soon need. A perfect pairing of creation and created. Though I know it’s planned, the machine’s behind it, but I’m comforted by the knowledge that they got it right. She got it right. A first listen through the album and nary a disappointing number among the bunch. It’s a languid tale, a lazy river of emotionally wrought but not fussed over music. Julia and I caught up over the phone recently to talk a bit about the album, her art and what she has planned for the future. AudioFemme: How do you think you’ve changed and grown as an artist and how are you showcasing that on Have You In My Wilderness? Julia Holter: I don’t know, I’m never able to say how I’ve grown. Obviously you learn things with experience, so that is true. With every new record I’m trying to do something different and so I never am really conscious of what the...

TRACK REVIEW: Doe Paoro “The Wind”

Posted by on Aug 25, 2015 in Recent, Reviews | 0 comments

Doe Paoro recently released a new single titled “The Wind” – and it is beautiful. The song was written during Hurricane Sandy – which for any New Yorker will invoke memories of fear, the dark, of rain coming down and uncertainty, but hopefully, if you were hiding out with someone you love, also a deep sense of intimacy. Shelter from the storm, if you will. “The Wind” was produced by Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) and features an enchanting beat created by the Chicago duo Supreme Cuts that rains down in deep, sharp beats as soaring interlaced vocals dance the song of calmness that only true intimacy can provide. Listen to “The Wind”...

#NEWMUSICMONDAY: Little May “Home”

Posted by on Aug 24, 2015 in Recent, Reviews | 0 comments

It’s Monday, which for many, means an earlier and violently annoying alarm clock, and perhaps engaging in tasks below us in order to bring home the bacon. Yet it’s also an empty row on a calendar of possibilities. Maybe you’ll get to pet an extraordinarily lovely dog. Maybe you’ll kiss someone like the stock market depended on it. And maybe…you’ll hear some delightful new music. Coming from Sydney, today we have for you the debut track “Home” from Little May....

ALBUM REVIEW: Deradoorian “The Expanding Flower Planet”

Posted by on Aug 24, 2015 in Editorial, MUSING, Recent, Reviews | 0 comments

Angel Deradoorian is a former member of the Dirty Projectors. As one of the band’s vocalists, she contributed to many of their trademark harmonies and long, sustained cries that used the singers’ voices more like an instrument than just a way to deliver words. Some of that sound creeps into her solo album The Expanding Flower Planet, but for the most part, Deradoorian chooses a bold, new direction. The album, which will be released on August 21 via Anticon, appeals to my San Francisco roots:...

FESTIVAL PREVIEW: Elements Music & Art Festival 8/22

Posted by on Aug 21, 2015 in Recent | 0 comments

This Saturday BangOn!NYC is holding their mysterious music and arts festival Elements. Along an industrial waterfront in Brooklyn, the vibe should be somewhere between Berlin’s Boiler Room and the bug-infested desert of Burning Man. A few subway lines away from wherever you reside, the one-day event promises to be a slice of music and escapism without plagues or planes. Elements will have four stages- Earth/Wind/Water/Fire, along with large-scale art installations, delicious food trucks, humans, fairies, hopefully giraffes, all sorts of magical...

LIVE REVIEW: Palberta @ Palisades

Posted by on Aug 20, 2015 in MUSING, OUT & ABOUT, Recent, Show Reviews | 0 comments

When the drummer of Palberta sat behind the kit and stared at the set with incredibly exaggerated concentration, she almost gave off the impression that she didn’t really know how to play. Every beat looked like a painstakingly calculated move, one you might see in a beginning musician who requires complete focus to practice their scales or rudiments. But this is Palberta, and they definitely know how to play. In fact, the members of the trio, Lily, Ani, and Nina, all took a turn behind the drumset during their August 14th set at Palisades,...

TRACK PREMIERE: Micky Blue “Champagne Reign”

Posted by on Aug 19, 2015 in EXCLUSIVE, Recent, Reviews | 0 comments

Anything described as “haunted pop” has already won my heart from the get go. On this day, Wednesday August 19th of 2015 AudioFemme is proud to premiere “Champagne Reign” by New York darling Micky Blue. “‘Champagne Reign’ is about how far some people are willing to go for the glamor and fame. I think you can still reach your dreams without “selling your soul” or loosing yourself, it’s a much harder and longer road but I think the payoff can...

TRACK REVIEW: Long Beard “Porch”

Posted by on Aug 18, 2015 in Recent, Reviews | 0 comments

Sleepwalker is the debut album from New Brunswick singer-songwriter Leslie Bear, except we’re calling her Long Beard, despite no evidence of said beard. It’s an album four years in the making, produced by Chris Daly, and joined by Devin Silvers and Tom Christie on bass, and Stefan Koekemoer on drums. On the single “Porch”, Bear’s vocals crawl delicately like a spider across a web spun by the guitar lines. The song paints an aural portrait of the most beautiful time of the 24 hours we...
