Julia Holter has a penchant for taking classic pop tunes and abstracting them into her own fascinating world of chamber pop and ambient. 'Don't Make Me Over' offers up two on a double A-side: the eponymous cover of the Dionne Warwick song, as well as the gloriously sustained and droning "Hello Stranger", which is a cover of Barbara Lewis' originally bright and bouncy soul tune. Holter makes it terrifying and tragic.

8/10 Alex 30th October 2015

The cover of a Bacharach / David song sung by the divine voice of Dionne Warwick is a weight few artists can bear. Julia Holter has proved capable of blending magnificently an RnB classic within her unique style when she covered Hello Stranger (b-side to this single) in her Loud City Song album. She tried to do the same here and on a large scale she succeeded. Her cover is dreamy, ethereal and lyrical as it should, although it lacks a dose of gloom one could expect from her. The b-side, though, is a triumph!
