Julianna Barwick talks about her album ‘Nepenthe’...

Louisiana born singer Julianna Barwick released one of the very best albums of 2013 with ‘Nepenthe’. Recorded in Iceland and produced by Alex Somers of Riceboy Sleeps, it features contributions from members of Sigur Ros, Amiina and Mum. It is a stunningly beautiful record, and a natural progression from her 2011 release ‘The Magic Place’. We caught up with her last week on the eve of an extensive tour of North America.
