[MUSIC FOR A DARKENED ROOM] \"Cinematic\" is quickly surpassing \"epic\" as the lazy rock-writer adjective du jour, but fucking hell: Is there any more appropriate word to describe the music of Julia Holter? The L.A.-based singer-composer\'s arrangements deliberately sound like movie soundtracks—well, art-film soundtracks, but those still count, right?—and some even point directly to their celluloid inspirations. Her latest album, Loud City Song, for example, is influenced in part by the 1958 movie musical Gigi. Heady stuff, and Holter has avant-garde tendencies, but the most impressive thing about the work is that, for all its intoxicating strings and brass and Holter\'s cool wisp of a voice, it\'s as listenable as it is watchable.
