While the main attraction of Utrecht's Le Guess Who? festival is clearly the abundance of musical riches, curated this year by Perfume Genius, Grouper and Shabazz Palaces, the gathering also hosts the world biggest CD and record fair.
We've asked some festival attendees to pick some records they'll be keeping an eye out for during November's festival/fair, and the next artist to make their choice is the US composer Juliana Barwick.
"Empire of the Sun soundtrack;
Blond - Frank Ocean."
"The first two are two of my favourite movies with incredible scores, and I’m basically obsessed/unable to stop listening to Blond."
"The Empire of the Sun soundtrack, by John Williams, is a very beautiful and moving score, complete with boy choirs. The theme of the movie, 'Suo Gan', a Welsh lullaby, is my favorite song of all time.
Danny Elfman's score for Beetlejuice is totally iconic, unprecedented in its sound, inimitable. Complete genius.
Frank Ocean's Blond is a Pandora’s box of beautiful and goosebump-inducing moments. I love Frank Ocean's voice more than anything."
"Blond. When I first bought this, it didn't grasp me right away. It's a little more complex and abstract/less pop than his previous releases. Then earlier this year, I put it on and I have listened to it almost daily since. I love his voice, so that's a main draw, but his songwriting, the pain you can absolutely feel to the bone - there really is no one out there making music like his. I saw him at a festival recently and I've never seen adoration on faces like that, people of every kind singing along to every word. I think the world is a better place because of his music."
