We’ve been fans of Moscow’s Dmitry Evgrafov from the very start, when he released Lying on Your Shoulder in a cardboard sleeve with tuck-in flap.  From there he’s gone from strength to strength; Comprehension of Light is one of ACL’s top modern composition albums of the

Peter Jones ~ Carrying Glass

Julianna Barwick ~ Healing Is A Miracle

Juliana Barwick‘s The Magic Place was our Album of the Decade, so we were extremely excited to hear that she would be releasing a new album in 2020.  Barwick’s music has always suggested healing, but on this set the association is front-and-center.  The entire
