Domino makes ceremonial alliance with Julia Holter, reissues Ekstasis

Julia Holter, Los Angeles’ sorceress of weirdo pop, has signed with indie big boys Domino for an as-yet unrecorded third album. To facilitate the deal, Holter gave Domino three goats and a magical amulet that would make people lose their shit over every single Animal Collective release, and Domino gave Holter (and the world) a reissue of her second release, this spring’s Ekstasis (TMT Review). Originally released on RVNG Intl., the new version of Ekstasis, clad in ceremonial robes and purified in the blood of six chickens, will hit stores December 17.

It has been a busy year (plus some months) for Holter. Tragedy, her debut album, a conceptual piece based on Euripedes’ play Hippolytus, started fanning up heart fires once it was released in August 2011. Then this spring, Ekstasis made its inaugural appearance on this veil of sorrows. Julia Holter’s first album for Domino will be released sometime in 2013.
