Julianna Barwick – The Magic Place

Julianna Barwick – The Magic Place

There are some records that, upon entering my consciousness, make me wonder how I ever lived without them. Among these records, without question, is Julianna Barwick’s new full-length on Asthmatic Kitty. The Magic Place is comprised of nine songs featuring little more than Barwick’s beautifully layered vocals rising into pure, sacred, harmonic bliss, with the occasional, perfectly placed piano floating somewhere in the mix. These are modern spirituals – music that affirms your earthly existence while also inhabiting a universe and a dimension all its own. Magic, indeed. Please don’t sleep on this one.
