Julianna Barwick's art is equal parts force and beauty. Her music finds its motor in significant events in her own life, but they are abstracted into a sense of sonic wonderment, a radiance that you could say ... Read more in Amazon's Julianna Barwick Store

Editorial Reviews

Julianna Barwick's art is equal parts force and beauty. Her music finds its motor in significant events in her own life, but they are abstracted into a sense of sonic wonderment, a radiance that you could say is her signature sound. That radiance has been taken to new zeniths with Nepenthe, her third full-length album, which was recorded in Reykjavík, Iceland, in the dark cold days of February.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply fantastic! October 11, 2013
By 6138
Format:Audio CD
Two days ago I had the opportunity to listen for the first time Julianna opening for Sigur Ros in Miami and I was immediately addicted to her music.
Her two CDs are simply fantastic! (as well as her performance).
What you will hear here is her beautiful voice looped and morphed into something extremely ethereal that sometimes doesn't even sound as a human voice and mixed with occasional piano.
If you like ambient music, beautiful female voices and soft melodies you have to try Julianna's music, you will not regret it. She will transport you to a place from where you won't want to leave.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is it About Iceland?????? January 29, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must say, I was not thrilled with Ms. Barwick's previous CD, but I heard a bit of this one on the radio and it sounded lovely, so I
took a chance. Also, I knew she had done all or part of it in Iceland, and so much magic comes out of there that I knew I had to check it out. And it is truly exquisite, and transporting. I think the incorporation of more external elements in addition to her voice
and piano really added tremendous depth and variety to the music. There is a children's choir, some strings, a bit of electronics (?), all very tastefully and elegantly employed.
All in all, a beautiful, meditative work, that never veers into "new age" mundanity. It's the companion CD to Jonsi and Alex's "Riceboy Sleeps"!!!
Highly recommended.

Such a delightfully haunting and supple album. Soothes the nerves and stirs the soul. I played it a lot during Christmas - what a relief!
