Julianna Barwick – The Magic Place

Juliana Barwick’s debut album The Magic Place is built largely from layers and layers of her own vocals with minimal instrumentation weaving its way between them.

Aptly, she explains the inspiration for the title thus: “The Magic Place was a tree on our farm. 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”.
