New Joanna Newsom!

New album is apparently called The Ys. 11/14. A self-indulgent review about how no one but me seems to understand the brilliance of this woman's earlier work, The Milk-Eyed Mender, is in the future. Can't wait to explain to the new roommates why I'm listening to what sounds like a ten-year-old girl singing and playing harp for two weeks. For now, just enjoy and admire the beauty (I'd be her Fireman):

Her national television debut, possibly the only worthwhile thing to ever come out of The Jimmy Kimmel Show:
