Little Fairy Girl - Joanna Newsom

(Here's a clearer version of this video.) She is so wyrd and wonderful! I first heard her singing a long winding tale about a monkey and a bear on the car radio. Back home, I ordered her two albums from the local music store and started sending out this video to everyone I know. And guess what. Even as I sent it to a musician friend of mine, he was on his way to my house with her first album, Ys! Magic.

That song is quite awesome. Must remember to look her up when I'm not so broke.

Oh, and I'm not sure if you've seen this, but someone seems to have posted a fan trailer of The Summer King on Youtube.

Ohhhh, thank you for sending me that link, Sal. Gave me a shiver, it did! I'm posting it on my Book Blog after a text message. (I don't like videos on top of videos.) So glad you like Joanna. I think she's brilliant. Actually Ys is her second album. The first is called The Milky-Eyed Mender.
