Joanna Newsom

Corey is featuring this lovely little video on Tongue In Cheek today, wrapped bequilingly, of course in her exquisite way with words. And she is so right, the video is just lovely. But more than that the music held me spellbound…

Sung by the bizarely pixie like woman child, Joanna Newsom, The Sprout and The Bean is enchanting, mostly because Joanna’s voice is singularily innocent,  endearingly intimate (though her odd little warble has not been recieved without contoversy) and blessed with peculiarly old fashioned calm thanks to the tinkle of her harp playing…

I just love it. I want her to sing me to sleep…


Whoops! There go more pennies erratically spent on Amazon. I do apologise if I am a bad influence…


  1. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I am glad you love her voice as much as me! A miracle on the harp, her videos are jewels aren't they!
    Thanks for the nod darling!

    Hmmmm yes I bought it already. She's like Bjork, The Incredible String Band and Kate Bush all rolled into one! Quirky and fabulous, I love it.
