WATCH // Julianna Barwick Releases First Of Two Takeaway Sessions For La Blogotheque, On Tour Now With Sigur Ros

We are excited to now release Julianna Barwick‘s first of two La Blogotheque Takeaway sessions. For this first session recorded at ├×ingvellir National Park in Iceland and filmed by Derrick Belcham, Julianna performs “The Harbinger” off her new album, Nepenthe. Watch the serene visual that accompanies Julianna’s already effortlessly beautiful performance HERE on La Blogotheque‘s site or ABOVE.

Read more to read Julianna speak on the video, links to buy her new album Nepenthe, and links to tour dates with Sigur Ros.

On filming the session, Julianna said, “Derrick and I drove deep into ├×ingvellir National Park. We were alone for a really long time before we finally came upon the lake. The water was iridescent blue-turquoise, surrounded by snow-capped mountains. We set up and filmed quickly as it was absolutely freezing!”

Purchase the new album which Pitchfork named “Best New Music” and The Guardian called “this is music that invites you to lay all cynicism down, to be absorbed by it, and transported”. Nepenthe is available at SCD, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.
