Joanna Newsom: The Milk Eyed Mender
Buy! - (Drag City RecordS)
She's a 22 year old harpist and member of The Pleased. This is her first full length release (she's had two EPs- Walnut Whales, and Yarn and Glue), and I can honestly say I've never heard anything like it. If I had to describe it, I'd say, imagine you're in a forest, and some kind of gypsie pixie is singing to you...and she's 5 years old and 500 years old at the same time. It's odd, yet oddly enchanting. You can download her songs from her website: http://www.walnutwhales.com 6/9/2004 - Rachel
