Julianna Barwick – The Magic Place (Asthmatic Kitty)

SH | The Asthmatic Kitty compilation ‘To Spirit Back The Mews’ first opened my eyes to this label, who have just dropped this lovely, meditative gem. Part Deep Listening Band, part Cocteau Twins, The Magic Place neither soothes nor coos, disturbs nor dreads. Julianna Barwick languishes in seemingly endless reverb environments, exploring the formalism of her own voice and its complex replay, creating a kind of Plato’s Cave of sound, where we can ponder the essential shallowness of depths quite beyond this record.
