Joanna Newsom

I should be sleeping right now, but I listened to this CD by Joanna Newsom (Milk-Eyed Mender) and decided to look her up. I have been listening to this CD before bed off and on for the last few weeks, and I really like it. Most of the songs are just voice and harp (played by her) and I dare say her voice is something to get used to. I am not sure why it (her voice) doesn't bother me, but it doesn't. What I'm trying to say here is that I think this CD is awesome.

If you go to this link be sure to listen to "Book of Right On."

If you go to this link be sure to watch "The Sprout and the Bean."


  1. I played Milk-Eyed Mender for a month straight after Toph introduced it to me. I definitely understand its appeal as a bedtime album... though it usually only exaggerates the inklings of insomnia that prompt an initial listen.

    Anyway, great site! It's cool to see what you've been up to. As always, let me know if you ever need a couch to sleep on -- and hey, maybe Katie and I will even get to see you the next time you do!
