Julianna Barwick - Florine

Florid, 2009

"Describing this hazy, hallucinogenic album from Brooklyn's Julianna Barwick, you can neatly take Panda Bear's trippier tracks as a jumping off point, as Barwick loops and layers beautiful vocal harmonies with a similar slow-motion deep sea vibe. But this lovely debut is more than just derivative, and the wordless sound collages are transporting." -other music

Saw her open for Eluvium, an a cappella set using just a microphone and loop pedal, and it sounded incredible. The songs on album don't even come close but still sound gorgeous. The first & last tracks are closest to what I heard live.

LIYL: Eluvium, Grouper, Inca Ore, Stellar Om Source, Valet, William Basinski, Enya
