Default Joanna Newsom

Anyone like? She plays the harp and sings, it sounds really good, 'Sadie' 'En Gallop' 'Casseopeia' or anything else from The Milk-Eyed Mender is cool. She has the most unusual voice, I'm not sure if I love it or if it grates on me. It's bizarre.

Yeah my friend sent me some of her stuff and I was sold on her playing a harp. However, when she started singing I honestly laughed out loud. She told me her voice grows on you, but its was just so comical I couldn't listen anymore. 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.

The music is beautiful, the lyrics are pretty good, however the voice is unbareable. She keeps it at a reasonable tone for short periods of time, but not long enough. I don't know if the voice will "grow on me".

It does. Or at least that's whiat I've found. Once you start listening to the actual lyrics it's crazy.

I think her voice is epic. It's child-like, and yet it navigates her complex melodic twists and turns with skill, and almost wisdom. Another thing I find interesting is how similar parts of "Emily" are to Springsteen's "Spirit in the Night" in terms of melody. I wonder if she's aware of this. I'm kind of disappointed to see there's no one around here that's as impressed with her as I am.

Also: If you have itunes...check out the podcast of NPR's All Songs Considered, in which Boileen interviews her and lets her choose some of the songs that are played. She's extremely articulate in a way that most muscians really aren't.
