The singer and producer Julianna Barwick makes these shimmering forests of sound by layering her breathy singing voice all over itself. He turns her own voice into something like an orchestra, and her pieces of music — it almost feels wrong to call them “songs” — have a soothing, blissed-out balm effect. After recording 2013’s Nepenthe in Iceland with Sigur Ròs producer Alex Somers, Barwick recorded her new album Will on her own, in various different locations, but its effect is pretty much the same. We’ve posted her “Nebula” video and her Mas Ysa collab “Same,” and now you can stream the whole album below, via NPR.
Will is out 5/6 on Dead Oceans.
