Julianna Barwick – One Half (2013)

Scroll down to content

Until recently, Julianna Barwick’s music was made up almost entirely of Julianna Barwick herself. By looping and layering her voice, the Brooklyn-based artist creates compositions that shift and shimmer in a sea of harmonies, using her own voice as the key instrument. For her new album Nepenthe, however, Barwick has emerged from the bedroom. Instead of the hyper-intimate pieces found on her first records, Barwick traveled to Reykjavík to collaborate with producer Alex Somers, best known for his work with Jónsi and Sigur Rós. Bringing on local Icelandic musicians—including members of múm and Amiina—the two created an album even more lush and layered than Barwick’s previous work. [Source]
