It's a curiously welcoming album, one with no pretence, which demands little more than your opened ears.
The results ... are each superior in both melody/harmony and songwriting to anything Barwick has released before.
So while there are few identifiable words here and the titles don't really register, there's a hell of a lot being expressed.
Gorgeous harmonies echo into infinity, rubbing up against only each other, brief touches of instrumentation and occasional rumblings of static.
The Magic Place is a graceful endeavor in harmonizing traditional choral techniques with more explorative abstractions.
