worth hearing: Joanna Newsom


I sort of wanted to call this post, “Portriat of the Harpist,” but decided against it. That said, Magpie has an excellent interview with this amazing talent.

The reason I debated using the “Joyce-ian” title was because this interview really does delve pretty deep not just into what makes Ms. Newsom tick, but what makes artists tick.

If you haven’t had the pleasure, check out the song below. Be forewarned, it’s likely not like anything you’ve ever heard, and I say that in the most positive way possible. Should you require further inducement to listen, the author of this interview compares Newsom’s work to Astral Weeks and In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.
