her music is awesome. You don't find to many positive reveiws for her though.

She does sound like a disabled child
lol, i'd have to agree with that, especially with her older albums. Milk-eyed mender was pretty good, but i think she has more control over her voice on newer ones like Ys.

Wow, I'd always been a casual fan of Joanna Newsom but I did find her voice grating after too long but listening to her now it's amazing. The music is so atmospheric in a dark room with just headphones (and a computer) the mood it sets is beautiful, the strings and her otherworldly voice and the world she paints with imagery words is stunning. "Emily I saw you last night by the river / I dreamed you were skipping little stones across the surface of the water / Frowning at the angle where they were lost and slipped under forever / In a mud-cloud, mica-spangled, like the sky'd been breathing on a mirror / Anyhow I sat by your side by the water/ You taught me the names of the stars overhead that I wrote down in my ledger / Though all I knew of the rote universe were those Pleiads loosed in December / I promised you I‘d set them to verse so I'd always remember." Absolutely stunning.

I'd willingly shave my balls and wear a pink tutu for the rest of my life if I could receive a blowjob from that pulchritudinous mouth.

A revival to this thread.

I downloaded "Milk-eyed mender" a week or two back and it has already got a few run throughs. Joanna + Harp = Awesomeness I just can't decide about that voice, sometimes I feel like hurting someone when hearing it and sometimes it is beautiful. Perplexed. Never the less, an album all should check out, if they have not previously.

It reminds me of someone, sorta of like the NY underground indie acts that like to posture alot and make up stupid voices for themselves, but much much worse.
that's actually natural for her though, but hey if she didn't take on this uniqueness someone else would and it'd no longer be unique so she went with it, and her songs are actually very good. it was less creepy after i watched her music vid for "Sprout and the Bean"
