Julianna Barwick – “White Flag”
The Magic Place

This album, mostly vocal, is unique and compelling but not an everyday listen. As the title suggests, it’s a “place” rather than, say, an adventure or experience, and each song seems to describe a different set of surroundings. White Flag seems vaguely African (in a “Graceland” way) while the title track is like a stone church. At any rate, it’s a relaxing and soft album and this is a good song. (insound)
