“The Magic Place” is the title track from Brooklyn-via-Louisiana vocal-manipulator (and Justin Bieber mashed) Julianna Barwick’s Asthmatic Kitty debut. Before that, though, it was a tree on her childhood farm. As she explains:
It was in the back pasture. It was one tree that grew up, down and around. You had to crawl in and once you were inside, it was like there were different rooms, and you could actually lay in the branches. We named it “The Magic Place because it really was magical — especially for a kid… and that’s how I feel about my life right now — without trying to sound too hippy dippy or cosmic, this year has definitely been a magical one.
This is what that sounds like:
The Magic Place is out 2/22 via Asthmatic Kitty.
