Newsom

Divers

Joanna Newsom - 2015

     Joanna is one of the most creative and unique artists in music today, and Divers is her best album, hands down. This is the marriage of performance, songwriting, and production all at their peak. Her usual pseudo-folk-classical-alternative sound is bolstered by some country instrumentation at times that’s one of those things that you didn’t realize would work as well as it does until you hear it. Her songs ignore songwriting conventions as usual, but it makes no difference. I won’t even attempt to dissect the music on Divers, because it just needs to be experienced. If I had to describe the album I’d say it’s an album Tori Amos listens to on a Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and a scone.
