Julianna Barwick: Knocking On Your Ears’ Door

The heavenly sounds of Julianna Barwick’s latest album, Nepenthe, on Dead Oceans, will be quite appropriately performed on Aug. 20 at the Judson Memorial Church in NY for the record’s release show. Inspired by her time in the Icelandic countryside, Barwick paints a portrait of beautiful ambience and crystal clear harmonization that echoes through every track and seems to carry the listener away. The unique usage of looping single phrases and sounds help the record seamlessly flow from one track to the next, and creates a fixture of individuality that Barwick has become known for.
