Thanks, Drag City Records

If you like your new things all pretty-sounding and sweet, you'll be pleased to hear that Joanna Newsom's latest album came out on Tuesday. In fairness, there's unlikely to be a major departure from her signature sound here but I reckon the record is worth a listen. Joanna's childlike vocals and delicate plucks on those harp-strings (there's room for a heart strings joke here, but I'll ignore it) maintain appeal and relevance when placed within the orchestral arrangements she so often crafts. Check out '81 below for a wee taster.
