monday music 101

Thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions - Goon Moon and Guggenheim Grotto are on the playlist in the next few weeks.

Right-so, all this week I’ve been listening to Joanna Newsom. (Newsom was a complete discovery for me. I picked up two of her albums last week and she has been plucking away in my ears ever since.)

At first her voice is a bit startling - especially mixed with the lightening speed and amazing sound that comes from her harp. But after a week of jumping between her albums (Milk Eyed Mender and Ys) I have come under her spell completely. The story like songs are vividly written and have a completely unexpected use of language. Brilliant!

Of the two - Ys is fast becoming my favourite. Anyway, no point harping on about her here - go and have a listen.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: she sounds like an eighty-year-old little girl.

    An eighty-year-old little girl with two albums more than you.

    I should point out, because it seems to have been lost in translation, that I really like Joanna Newsom. In smallish doses though. And The Milk-Eyed Mender is better.

    You just like to argue with me…
