Julianna Barwick: Nepenthe
Buy! - (Dead Oceans)
This Brooklyn-based musician’s third album is a gorgeous set of haunting ambient pop. Recorded in Iceland with Alex Somers and featuring a number of other Icelandic musicians including members of Amiina and Mum along with a teenage girl choir, Nepenthe features a lushly produced sound of droning synth tones, strings, piano, looped and layered ethereal vocals and poignant melodies. 8/7/2013 - Don Yates
