- Goddess Eyes by Julia Holter
My mouth has just taken delivery of a mince pie, the teeth are chewing away at it and some glorious juices are sliding down my throat. Providing the soundtrack to this food porn is Julia Holter. A lady I’m not yet acquainted with (one of the very few given MY reputation, I hear you say). People have raved about this lady, including our lot with 5 star reviews across the board.
This 12” contains three versions of the same track and then a totally different song. Its a pleasant if not mindblowing update on the ‘80s lady weirdness of Laurie Anderson and (dare I say it) Cyndi Lauper, all ploddy drum machines, warm synths and vocodered voice. I’m bored of hearing the same song three times (albeit different versions) so I’ll move on to the other track which is astonishingly Kate Bush circa ‘Hounds Of Love’ all passionate vocals, synths, melodic twists and terribly ill considered instrumental touches. It’s all a bit noodle exploration and the dark spectre of Enya hangs over it all but the good bits are very very good.
