Joanna Newsom- Walnut Whales
I know this is a pretty extreme contrast to the stuff my homeboy has been putting up lately, but Joanna Newsom is certainly an artist who deserves all the recognition the world will allow her. Certainly not the most impressive release from Newsom's fairly prolific history, Walnut Whales is a rare record self-recorded by Joanna pre-record label signature. Most of the album consists of earlier and shittier recordings of songs made popular by the Milk-Eyed Mender album, but any Newsom fan would certainly will be curious to hear what the older versions of their favorites sound like (many songs performed exclusively with an electric piano).
