julianna's asthmatic kitty records debut, 'the magic place' is a nine-piece full-length album of magic and solace, bursting joy and healing tones. julianna's mostly-a-capella music is built from her voice multi-tracked through a loop station. there's more backing instrumentation on this one than on previous albums but it's the vocals - soaring high in reverb-drenched, wordless harmonies - that matter most here. it's the layered fragments and pieces that become an intricate pattern through technology; it's the sound of a rising thing, a big group harmony as a splash of sunlight through a car window, a sound that feels like hope and ascendance and patience and intimacy.
