For Mixtapes, we ask today’s leading musicians, authors, filmmakers and artists to assemble an hour of new-music that they find particularly compelling or that exemplifies the shifting boundaries of today’s musical climate. Today’s mixtape comes courtesy of Los Angeles-based experimental singer/songwriter Julia Holter, whose recent album Ekstasis is itself as much “new music” as it is “indie rock.”

“Music to Hear Now. About this mix: “Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.” – Ludwig van Beethoven” – Julia Holter
