WATCH // Teaser For Julianna Barwick’s ‘Nepenthe,’ Album Out August 20

Julianna Barwick has a brand new album coming to you August 20. Created this past February in Reykjavík, Iceland, Nepenthe speaks to the isolation and grief Julianna experienced during the making of the album. Taking her recording process out of the bedroom and into a foreign country led Julianna to welcome new beings, both human and landscape, into the making of her third album. The ending is Julianna much as we’ve seen her before, only this time the experience is heightened.

Today, we are treated to the first look and sound of Nepenthe. Watch the Derrick Belcham directed album trailer “Forever” above or at Pitchfork. You’ll find the Nepenthe album artwork and tracklisting below.

Nepenthe Track Listing:
1. Offing
2. The Harbinger
3. One Half
4. Look Into Your Own Mind
5. Pyrrhic
6. Labyrinthine
7. Forever
8. Adventurer of the Family

10. Waving To You

WATCH // Night Beds Cover Robyn for the A.V. Club


Night Beds cover Robyn

Night Beds are pretty damn good at anything they do. Take, for example, this reworking of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” recorded for the A.V. Club’s covers series. It takes a certain kind of imagination to put that song and this band together, but wallllaaaa it works! Check the video out above.

LYRICS :: DEAD IN YOUR HEAD

Time to think about what you lost
Cuz you know baby it’s gonna hit you hard.
Time to figure out where it all went wrong
Cuz you know baby it’s gonna hit you so hard.
So hard.

I never wanted to lose the boy I love the most.
I never wanted to hurt the boy I love the most.

When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?

Time to think about what you want
Cuz you know maybe it’s our timing that was off.
Time to figure out where it all went wrong
Cuz you know baby it’s gonna hit you so hard.
So hard.

I never wanted to lose the boy I love the most.
I never wanted to hurt the boy I love the most.

When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you close your eyes at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you lie alone at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
When you close your eyes at night
Do you start to dream about
All the things dead in your head?
