    Her songs sound even more spaced out and unreal than ever.

    In taking her sorrow, turning it on its head and finding inspiration in another magical place, she has produced something powerfully, uniquely transcendent: something vast and expansive, intimate and affecting all at once.

    There is beauty on Nepenthe, but it’s altogether too clean and self-regarding to pack much of a punch.
