If I could take ONE ALBUM with me to a desert island…uh, well, actually, it’d probably consist of recorded instructions on how the fuck NOT to DIE on a goddamn desert island.

But, truly: if I could take seven or eight, Julia Holter’s stunning 2018 effort Aviary would be one of them.

In fact, the only thing I can think of that could make Holter’s most recent chamber-pop stunner more memorable (particularly if I was slowly starving to death on a hideous beach somewhere with nothing to look at but tortuously endless blue sky and water) is some handy visual aids for its constituent tracks.

OH COOL LOOK: HERE’S ONE NOW. It was directed by Geneva Jacuzzi, stars Holter and Tashi Wada, and kinda puts a somewhat positive spin on the whole concept of “beach torture.” Yep, this’ll do nicely:
