ALBUM RELEASE // Julianna Barwick “Nepenthe” Out Today

Beyond proud to release Julianna Barwick‘s new album, Nepenthe, today in stores and online! Produced by Sigor Ros‘s Alex Somers in Iceland, Julianna’s layered angelic vocals loop in and out of expansive compositions meant to represent the sorrow and sadness she faced before and during the album’s recording, but also reflect the stark beauty and loneliness of Iceland in what Nathan Shaffer of Tiny Mix Tapes calls “profound and giving music.”

All this week you can stream Julianna’s third full-length album, Nepenthe, via Gorilla Vs Bear. Order the new album at SCD, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

Read more below for early reviews, her in-studio performance of “Forever” live on WNYC’s Soundcheck, and info on her album release show tonight plus tour dates through late Fall.

LISTEN // Interview Mag Premieres Julianna Barwick’s “One Half”, Pre-Order ‘Nepenthe’ Out August 20th

Interview Magazine premiered the new single, “One Half” from solo artist Julianna Barwick. The track, off her recently announced new album, Nepenthe, is the first audio we have heard from her follow-up album to the fantastic 2011 release The Magic Place. Nepenthe was recorded in Iceland with Alex Somers (Sigur Rós, Jónsi, Jónsi & Alex) and the album definitely plays well against the dark and lush landscapes of the recording environment. Compared to her last album, recorded in her Brooklyn bedroom studio, this album looks to have much wider and sweeping arrangements transporting the listener to Iceland with Barwick, giving them something truly inspiring to hear.

You can pre-order the new album at SCD, iTunes, and Amazon. If you are in Manhattan in August then stop by Judson Memorial Church on the 20th for her album release show. Check the rest of her tour dates here.

ON FILLMORE’S Extended Vacation Released Today, Highlighted In The New York Times

Today, the “rhythm section’s revenge” otherwise known as ON FILLMORE, the collaboration of Wilco’s Glenn Kotche and bassist Darin Gray, release unto the world their sultry, lovely Dead Oceans’ debut, Extended Vacation. The album is a confusing and comforting journey that features moody vibes, noir-film bass approaches, jungle predators, exotic birdcalls and ominous, rattling war drums. Don’t you think you deserve a little vacay?

This week, Extended Vacation was featured in The New York Times’ Sunday Playlist, in which critic Nate Chinen said of the piece: “It all suggests a peculiar update of early-1960s exotica, with a heart of darkness in place of a setting sun.” Read the entire review HERE.
