5.0 out of 5 stars Leicester Bangs Review (2011):, 14 May 2011

This review is from: The Magic Place (Audio CD)
Julianna Barwick - The Magic Place (Asthmatic Kitty)
Louisiana-born New Yorker Julianna Barwick's second record sounds like it could have been released on the 4ad label back in the early 1980s. Instant reference points are Cocteau Twins and Le Mystère Des Voix Bulgares, though there's nothing here that approaches a 'song'. Instead vocals are looped and layered over drones and sighs, almost entirely the product of Barwick's vocal chords and something called a Loop Station. When other instruments are recognized, it's invariably a piano, gently and slowly finding a path through the archaic chants, or a lonely bass echoing the depth of natural sound. Haunting, ethereal and quite magical.

so, one could call her the indie enya...let's just say she is making brave and interesting new music. at its best, it's sublime with so much space. "prizewinning" is just a gorgeous track and you can dance to it too!
