Joanna Newsom

From what I’ve read, people either love or hate Joanna Newsom. She just started singing a few years ago (you’ll understand once you hear), but how she accepts and uses her fragile voice is part of her charm. Each time I listen I appreciate her more — and she’s a classicaly trained harpist, what more is there to say?

Her newest album, The Milk-Eyed Mender has some great tracks: I especially like This Side of the Blue; “En Gallop”; and Peach, Plum, Pear.

She also performs with other groups: The Pleased, and recently, a pairing with Hella drummer Zach Hill and Deerhoof‘s Greg Saunier in a self-titled album: Nervous Cop.

  1. Hi again 🙂
    Hot damn, a post on Joanna Newsom as well. I’ve been a fan of hers for a year now. I enjoyed the posts on this blog from Feist to this – I think I’m going to check in regularly, keep it up! 🙂

  2. thanks — Joanna Newsom sings/is beautiful. i just found out about her a couple months ago. i used to major in instrumental music myself — so i always have love for orchestral instruments, especially when used creatively.
