A new Joanna Newsom album - Yes! Well actually, YS. You pronounce it "ees". YS is an unspeakably incredible 45 minute album that consists of 5 songs. YS is to Ms Newsom a dream collaboration between her voice and harp and an orchestra.
A squeaky-voiced harpist with pals amongst the freak-folkers, Newsom now teams up with both Steve Albini and Jim O'Rourke and gets her Van Dyke Parks on with some proggily symphonic suites. Who does she think she is'"the Fiery Furnaces?
