Joanna Newsom's Harpe of Hearts


Joanna Newsom is fucking awesome. She's the person i've been listening to most latley.

You may know one of her songs; "This Side Of The Blue" from the Orange New York Blackout advert, it's a song that gives off a certain style of atmosphere, if you listen when you're in bed at night you could swear you were floating.
And she's not just a one trick pony, either, listen to "The Book Of Right On" and "The Sprout And The Bean" and you'll hear just how good she is. At first you'll think her high pitched voice seems a bit odd, but it works. After listening for a few days i totally fell in love with her voice, and the way she plays the harpe is just beautiful. Every strum of her finger just seems playful and sweet.
She's my artist of the year, and i highly reccomend her. GO LISTEN!


Coming next update will be a story of Office Christmas Party crapness.
