Joanna Newsom - 2006
You just want to put on either some left over costume from St. Richard's Fair or comfy pajamas and dance around mapoles and frolic in the fields of this charming album. Can I get a witness? Imagine Bjork goes Baroque!
Highlights: Emily (So nervous her sophmore album would be nonsense but this lead off track sets the perfect quiet, harp driven tone for this imaginative disc)
Sawdust & Diamonds (song of the year? Quite Possibly, ask Greg)
Cosmia (Albini production does not fail)C. Scott Back
C. Scott ranks this as the
#5 favorite album of 2006
