    Default Joanna Newsom Appreciation Thread

    The new album's right around the corner. A talent quite unlike any other.

    I hope the world has not forgotten about Joanna during her long absence.

    Joanna is my fave. Still, put something in it besides a bizarre and poorly shot fashion photo.

    For example:

    Back in 2004


    in 2007. Check out how much better her voice has gotten.


    The new song she played at the Disney Concert hall back in 2007


    Pretty much every song from Ys got better when she played with the ys Street band, but Cosmia gained a whole new life.

    Cosmia is my fav. The last minute of that song is my favorite part of all of Ys.

    This is an old classic, one of my videos on all of the 'tube, this song performed as it should be.


    My favorite 4 minutes of Joanna:

    And she's funny:

    (Interview from the New Statesmen)

    1 Does art make a difference?
    Aw, sure. Of course there are degrees of extremity to the potential change that art can effect, depending on how many people are able to engage with it. The Beatles made a huge difference in the world. But Henry Darger, Jeff McKissack, Karen Dalton, Pauline Oliveros, Kenneth Patchen – there are so many folks who have made great art and not gotten massively famous for it, yet I think there are all sorts of ways their work informs and shapes other people’s work, and brains, and decisions.

    2 Should politics and art mix?
    Well, everything mixes, the New Statesman! That’s like asking if a knee-reflex hammer and a quadriceps tendon should “mix”.

    3 Is your work for the many or for the few?
    That’s for the many/few to say. I just crank out the hot jams.

    4 If you were world leader, what would be your first law?
    Gravity. I feel like we need to tighten up the constitutional protections that particular law enjoys. It’s a ticking time bomb, if you ask me.

    5 Who would be your top advisers?
    Cute angel on one shoulder, cute devil on the other.

    6What, if anything, would you censor?
    Maybe we could all agree to not bust each other’s chops all cut-dang day.

    7 If you had to banish one public figure, who would it be?
    don’t know, banishment might be a little extreme, but I’d sure like to take that Stephen Hawking dude down a notch or two. Right? Are you with me?

    8 What are the rules that you live by?
    Basically, “bros before hos”. I feel like if you stay true to that, everything else just kind of falls into place.

    9 Do you love your country?
    I love William Faulkner, Dolly Parton, fried chicken, Van Dyke Parks, the Grand Canyon, Topanga Canyon, bacon cheeseburgers with horseradish, Georgia O'Keeffe, Grand Ole Opry, Gary Snyder, Gilda Radner, Radio City Music Hall, Big Sur, Ponderosa pines, Southern BBQ, Highway One, Kris Kristofferson, National Arts Club in New York, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Joni Mitchell, Ernest Hemingway, Harriet Tubman, Hearst Castle, Ansel Adams, Kenneth Jay Lane, Yuba River, South Yuba River Citizens League, “Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore”, “Hired Hand”, “The Jerk”, “The Sting”, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, clambakes, lobster rolls, s'mores, camping in the Sierra Nevadas, land sailing in the Nevada desert, riding horseback in Canyon de Chelly; Walker Percy, Billie Holiday, Drag City, Chez Panisse/Alice Waters/slow food movement, David Crosby, Ralph Lauren,San Francisco Tape Music Center, Albert Brooks, Utah Phillips, Carol Moseley Braun, Bolinas CA, Ashland OR, Lawrence KS, Austin TX, Bainbridge Island WA, Marilyn Monroe, Mills College, Elizabeth Cotton, Carl Sandburg, the Orange Show in Houston, Toni Morrison, Texas Gladden, California College of Ayurvedic Medicine, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Saturday Night Live, Aaron Copland, Barack Obama, Oscar de la Renta, Alan Lomax, Joyce Carol Oates, Fred Neil, Henry Cowell, Barneys New York, Golden Gate Park, Musee Mechanique, Woody Guthrie, Maxfield Parrish, Malibu, Maui, Napa Valley, Terry Riley, drive-in movies, homemade blackberry ice cream from blackberries picked on my property, Lil Wayne, Walt Whitman, Halston, Lavender Ridge Grenache from Lodi CA, Tony Duquette, Julia Morgan, Lotta Crabtree, Empire Mine, North Columbia Schoolhouse, Disneyland, Nevada County Grandmothers for Peace; Roberta Flack, Randy Newman, Mark Helprin, Larry David, Prince; cooking on Thanksgiving; Shel Siverstein, Lee Hazlewood, Lee Radziwill, Jackie Onassis, E.B. White, William Carlos Williams, Jay Z, Ralph Stanley, Allen Ginsberg, Cesar Chavez, Harvey Milk, RFK, Rosa Parks, Arthur Miller, “The Simpsons”, Julia Child, Henry Miller, Arthur Ashe, Anne Bancroft, The Farm Midwifery Center in TN, Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey, Jr., Eleanor Roosevelt, Clark Gable, Harry Nilsson, Woodstock, and some other stuff. Buuuut, the ol' U S of A can pull some pretty dick moves. I'm hoping it'll all come out in the wash...

    10 Are we all doomed?
    If we keep our expectations pretty low I think we might be fine. I mean, we’re definitely all dying at some point. There’s no getting around that. But between now and then, things might start looking up!

    If you're going to post any picture, it should be the bathroom picture.

    And I support this thread. I have my fingers crossed that she will come to Dallas on tour and play at my favorite venue. I will cry.

    her Australian label is droppin' bombs

    Joanna Newsom ‘Have One On Me’ – February 19 on Spunk

    Today, Spunk is thrilled to announce the forthcoming Joanna Newsom album ‘Have One On Me’, due for release February 19. This is Joanna’s third full length album and is a sophisticated and enchanting collection of work from this unparalleled talent. Her last record ‘Ys’ was a conceptual masterpiece of ethereal harp, lush vocals and expansive, complex orchestrations arranged by Van Dyke Parks, and was recently voted one of the Albums of the Decade by Pitchfork and Mojo Magazine.

    The album is released in Australia via Spunk February 19, and released the rest of the world February 23.

    I dislike it because it doesn't show her talent; she could easily be interpreted as some no-good pop star harlot from that shot by someone unfamiliar with her work.

    JoJo Newsom is totally one of the most innovative and brilliant artists of the last decade. Hands down.


    And if she played Coachella...I'm there. Front row.

    The updated one shows some of her talent at least: the talent of being extraordinarily good looking.

    According to some message board hearsay, Joanna Newsom’s upcoming Have One On Me was mixed and mastered at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studios — but not by Steve, who produced Ys. (So why the trip to Japan? Recording with Jim O’Rourke, perhaps, but not mixing?) But more interestingly, the anonymous engineer said the album will be quite long — so perhaps her two-and-a-half hour preview in Big Sur last year wasn’t just a tease.
    Hm.

    I had heard Joanna's name mentioned several times before, but had never listened to her material before last weekend. Ys was my first taste of her, and I really enjoyed it. I can see how some are put off by her voice, but I think it fits her voice perfectly and can't wait to see her when she comes to town next.

    Just got a couple CDs by Joanna Newsom. She has a little girl accent, but I love the harp enough to look past that. Also, I think that first picture of her shows her talent greatly. I mean, look at those bent fingers. Those things are like spiders for the harp.
