Ethereal pop goddess Julianna Barwick has announced a new album, Nepenthe, the follow
up to her acclaimed 2011 album The Magic Place. Nepenthe was reportedly
recorded under the helm of Icelandic producer Alex Somers (who previously produced
Jónsi's solo album), with help from various members of fellow ethereal enthusiasts Amiina
and Múm, and a "teenage female choir". Nepenthe is due out in August on Dead Oceans.
