Amoeba Review

09/23/2015

Have You in My Wilderness gets away with being lighter on its feet than her previous work while still standing strong as another multifaceted work from the singer/composer. Though her work has always been melodically strong, jaunty songs like “Feel You” and “Sea Calls Me Home” display a newfound focus on breezy pop hooks. But the album is highly varied. “Silhouette” moves from deconstructed Kate Bush-style avant-pop into an elegant chorus. “How Long?” sees Holter playing the part of tragic jazz chanteuse. The musicalesque “Everytime Boots” calls to mind Loud City Song’s “Gigi”-inspired song cycle. And the sweeping orchestral majesty and floating layers of vocals of “Lucette Stranded on the Island” are nothing short of heavenly. Have You in My Wilderness may be Holter’s most accessible album, but it doesn’t pander, nor does it try to hide her bookish, sometimes esoteric leanings. On the stirring closing track, Holter breaks through a cloudy arrangement with a suddenly weepy moment, entreating, “Why do I feel you running away?” It’s a perfect way of summing up the album’s strengths, earning its emotional pull with firmly intellectual construction.
