Joanna Newsom - Milk-Eyed Men (Drag City)
Uniquely voiced harp strumming oddity from San Francisco, Joanna Newsom creates beautiful avant-folk-esque songs. Her voices is strange and beautiful, imagine the innocence of Bjork melded with the maturity of Billy Holiday. Her harp playing is unlike anything IÍve ever heard. Songs are very minimal in instrumentation but with that each song still seems fresh and different from the previous. PLAY THIS!

**1 (3:42) -Mid Swing, harp and voice, beautiful!
**2 (4:21) -Slow Ballad, Sad and beautiful. My Fav track!
**3 (4:00) -Mid Ballad, more minimal, great layering of melodies
*4 (6:00) - More upbeat but still odd. Cool!
5 (2:00) - Piano arrangment. Feels traditional.
**6 (5:12) - Slow & Deep, minimal with beautiful lap steel guitar & organ. Very Haunting!
**7 (5:03) - Mid Tempo, great harp work, sounds like an ancient Chinese instrument
*8 (3:00) -More energetic but still dreamy
9 (3:30) - Harpsichord w/ cool vox
**10 (5:00)- Deep ballad, Gorgous!
*11 (3:40) -Paino song with distant vocals
*12 (4:17) - Slow and warm, Amazing Grace-like!
