Watch Julianna Barwick Perform “The Harbinger” At The Andy Warhol Museum (Stereogum Premiere)

When listening to Julianna Barwick’s music, especially her excellent 2013 album, Nepenthe, it’s easy to forget that nearly everything you’re hearing comes from her voice, impressionistically looped and layered. Fortunately the Louisiana-born, Missouri-raised, and Brooklyn-based experimental siren’s live shows get that across as she builds glacial and blissful songs right in front of you. Barwick… More »

Bumbershoot Lineup 2014

The Bumbershoot Festival goes down in venues around Seattle every year on Labor Day weekend, and the lineup for this year’s festivities on 8/30-9/1 just came out. As usual, it’s a unique assembly of talent, not just a retread of your basic festival mainstay. A sampling of notable acts: Wu-Tang Clan (featuring… who knows?), the… More »

Julianna Barwick – “Meet You At Midnight”

The impressionist sound-sculptor Julianna Barwick is maybe not the first person you’d associate with the practice of slamming brews, but she has just teamed up with the craft brewery Dogfish Head, who make some good goddam beers, to make her own IPA. As Pitchfork points out, Barwick’s beer, Rosabi, has red rice and wasabi flavor… More »

Julianna Barwick – “The Harbinger” Video

Earlier this year Julianna Barwick released Nepenthe, a record that pushed her impressionistic vocal collages to a beautiful peak. The video for “The Harbinger” is equally impressionistic, providing just the briefest sketches of a story — a body floating in water, a ghost-like after-image, one brief flash of a man’s face. It’s the fact that… More »

Watch Julianna Barwick’s “Ash Day” Takeaway Show

Everyone knows Halloween is the best holiday of the year. Between the candy, the costumes, the horror movies, and that Ray Bradbury TV-special it easily wins — except in Iceland when kids do most of that for Ash Wednesday. So as part of “The Takeaway Show” series, La Blogothèque (who have a reputation for great… More »

Julianna Barwick – “Crystal Lake” Live At Judson Church Video

This video from Julianna Barwick’s Nepenthe release show at Judson Church is the most exquisitely gorgeous sound I’ve encountered in a long time. Barwick conjures “Crystal Lake” as an extended celestial sigh with an assist from guest musicians Scott Bell and Rose Nelis and guest vocalists Sharon Van Etten and Taraka and Nimai Larson from… More »

Julianna Barwick – “One Half” Video

The summer kicked off with Julianna Barwick’s “One Half” from her upcoming album Nepenthe and comes to a close (yep, sorry) with a video for the track. What starts off with looming portrait shots that build like the song turns into a celestial forest and odd picnic scene as the cut ascends into balladry. Check… More »

Julianna Barwick – “One Half”

Ambient-music soul-stirrer Julianna Barwick builds gorgeous landscapes out of her own voice, and her new album Nepenthe looms; we’ve already heard the early track “Forever.” “One Half,” the next song she’s shared from the album, might be the closest thing to an actual song, rather than undulating whisper-cloud, that Barwick has ever made, though it… More »

Julianna Barwick – “Forever”

Ambientist Julianna Barwick is gearing up to drop a new solo album Nepenthe at the end of the summer and has released a preview of its music, including a full version of the track “Forever.” According to press release, the word “nepenthe” is a memory-wiping drug referenced in Ancient Greek literature that is used to… More »

Julianna Barwick – “Pacing”

Julianna Barwick’s looped, harmonic vocal tapestry work is unceasingly sublime, if occasionally difficult to differentiate on a piece-by-piece basis. As such it is always the right choice for a good meditation/steambath session, and “Pacing” is no different, though it’s piano-laced sounds are somewhat more distinct. “Pacing”‘s resonant echoes and velvety ivories will add some majesty… More »

OMBRE – “Tormentas”

Sound sculptor Julianna Barwick and lilting electro-folker Helado Negro have teamed up to form the new duo OMBRE, and they released Believe You Me, their first album together, this week.

OMBRE – “Vistate”

Earlier this summer, we heard the first track from Helado Negro and Julianna Barwick’s collaboration as OMBRE, the tranquil, sweeping “Cara Falsa.” Today, they’re dropping their newest single, a meditative piece of music called “Vistate” where Helado (Roberto Carlos Lange) takes the lead in Spanish.

OMBRE – “Cara Falsa” Video

Here’s the simple, very hypnotizing video for OMBRE’s (the experimental pop supergroup of Julianna Barwick and Helado Negro) warm and wide-eyed “Cara Falsa,” in which fireworks go off in near syncopation with the song. There is some mirroring involved, also, to reinforce the trancey feel. Watch it below. More »

Korallreven – “Sa Sa Samoa” Video

In director Filip Nilsson’s video for “Sa Sa Samoa,” the Julianna Barwick collaboration from the Swedish ethereal-pop production duo Korallreven, we watch a guy with a scraggly beard and a very nice hooded windbreaker slowly ambling around while clutching a mysterious, possibly magical lunchbox. Not a whole lot happens until the final two shots, but… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: January 2012

Here it is, the first mix of The Last Year. So far we’ve had a flood of good music these first few weeks of 2012, which in fairness is probably just the result of bands wisely holding back on releasing things into the holiday void that is the winternet, but let’s be optimistic about it… More »
