Review: Julianna Barwick’s The Magic Place

February 24th, 2011

Julianna Barwick
The Magic Place
(Asthmatic Kitty)
A-

Need to know: Born and raised in Louisiana and Missouri, Julianna Barwick calls the pastoral environment of her youth one of her key influences. Her minimal arrangements are built mostly around vocal loops and soaking them in delay and reverb with some slight instrumentation. The Magic Place marks her debut for her new label, Asthmatic Kitty.

Via Twitter: With only her voice + some effects, Barwick has produced an ethereal LP rich with beguiling melodies that radiate a fixed transcendent vibe.

Sample: The full album is streaming over at NPR.

RIYL: Björk’s Medulla, Grouper, Mark McGuire, Stars of the Lid
