CRITIC REVIEWS

musicOMH

It's a curiously welcoming album, one with no pretence, which demands little more than your opened ears.

87
Beats Per Minute

The results ... are each superior in both melody/harmony and songwriting to anything Barwick has released before.

85
Pitchfork

So while there are few identifiable words here and the titles don't really register, there's a hell of a lot being expressed.

80
Drowned in Sound

Gorgeous harmonies echo into infinity, rubbing up against only each other, brief touches of instrumentation and occasional rumblings of static.

80
No Ripcord

The Magic Place is a graceful endeavor in harmonizing traditional choral techniques with more explorative abstractions.

70
Tiny Mix Tapes

Barwick’s meticulously arranged but transcendent music has never been more sophisticated or immersive than on her new LP, The Magic Place.
