Julianna Barwick: Nepenthe

MP3  9.99     CD  12.99     LP  15.99    

Nepenthe (2013) was recorded in Reykjavik, Iceland, produced by Alex Somers (Sigur Rós, Jonsi, Alex & Jonsi) and includes string ensemble Amiina, guitarist Róbert Sturla Reynisson from M?ºm, and a choir of teenage girls. The music of Nepenthe was influenced by the unfamiliar surroundings of Iceland itself, with its vibrant music scene and stunningly alien landscapes with their lingering magic.

"[Nepenthe] deserves mention among the best and most artful ambient music being made today?” - Pitchfork, Best New Music
