So, I know for a fact that there are a lot of y’all in Miami who don’t know about Julianna Barwick. How’s that? Because she played a FREE show at MCAD a few months back and there were less than 10 people there. Alright, it was announced sorta last-minute, so I’ll let it slide, but still – if you don’t know about Julianna Barwick, you’re missing out on one of the best contemporary ethereal/experimental artists active today. Think Sigur Ros meets Cocteau Twins with neo-classical leanings, all layered, looped and stunning beyond belief. Take a listen to the track “Same” below and pick up a copy of Will on beautiful, limited edition “rose gold” vinyl. Lots of new/used/local in-stocks on the shelves too – come dig all weekend! -MLE
Julianna Barwick – Will LP
“Conceived and self-produced over the past year in a variety of locations, Will is a travelogue of sorts – weaving together swaths of inspiration from a desolate house in upstate New York to the Moog Factory in Asheville, North Carolina to Lisbon, Portugal.
An electric current runs throughout the record, sharp and soft textures colliding to cathartic results. Will is a late afternoon thunderstorm – looming and restorative all at once. Featuring contributions from Thomas Arsenault (Mas Ysa), Dutch cellist Maarten Vos and percussionist, Jamie Ingalls (Chairlift, Tanlines, Beverly), Will is largely a product of ups and downs, a reflection of a life lived somewhere in between transience and standing still.” -Dead Oceans
If it be your will – new releases, reissues and restocks…
