Hmmm. I don’t know what all this is about. Julia Holter is doing an interpretation of ‘Maria’ sung by Lyudmila Gurchenko (nope me neither). It’s melodramatic Euro-noir that performs the possibly unintentional feat of sounding like an Abba song that I just can’t place. You know that one when they sing in a broken Russian accent? Torrid stuff.

On the B side is something I like a lot more. It’s Holter’s interpretation of the Roxy Music song ‘2HB’ recorded down the phone for a radio programme. I’d say it’s for completists only but neither side particularly sounds like Holter, the B side does have a weird, crackly charm as if beamed from some space station...the A side unfortunately my ears have rejected entirely.
