Ys by Joanna Newsom

Ys by Joanna Newsom

Before "Ys" I was sort of on the fence about Joanna Newsom; now I heart her with all my love. I think this is probably the only time in my life that I'll be obsessed with someone who plays harp.

  • Pieta Brown's Mercury communicates a mood which is often missing in the American music landscape. Emmylou Harris and Nico Case have gone there now its time for Pieta Brown to take the wheel.

  • Yes, this is Bonnie "Prince" Billy, even though it clearly says "Bonny Billy." It's him, live with a legendary bluegrass, folk group and it's all in stride. This one is super fun and you need it for the upcoming summer, no doubt.

  • Nico's Chelsea Girl (1967) was not her debut solo effort. The album is an introspective with a longing for dreams and love.

Their newest, however, is particularly doing me right. It's this raw, genuine folk rock, but that is all inspired and named after verses in the bible.

  • Rilo Kiley was one of my favorite bands. This was an excellent side project of Jenny Lewis... folksy with a bit of a southern twang, I particularly loved the cover of "handle with care" on this album.

If all you've got is iTunes and an iPod for all your music needs, that'll work too. This is the first solo album from Nico and one that still echos in the music world. Not to mention it was because of this album that we have "The Royal Tenenbaums." That is, Wes Anderson first thought of the movie as a single scene with someone getting off a bus to the tune of "These Days" It all came from there.

Green Rocky Road is as close as we’ll ever get to hearing the record Karen Dalton would have made in 1963. Discovered on the same reel-to-reel tapes that yielded the live performances comprising the Cotton Eyed Joe release, were nine home recordings of Dalton left alone, with no one watching, no audience to please. Accompanied solely by her own sturdy banjo picking and 12 string strumming, her deep blue, smoky-throated singing evokes the voices and faces of past lives lived – the broken-backed pioneer, the coalminer black with shadow, the stained fingers of the slave, the prostitute…the dead and forgotten. Karen was perhaps the last true folk singer and that’s the bases of the potent appeal of her enigmatic art and of her commercial failure during her too-brief lifetime.

Neil Young hits the mark with this album. Harvest is his best-known album, with perhaps his best song "The Needle and the Damage Done", but this sequel to Harvest is a robust collection that shares a universal message and is incredibly listenable for almost any audience. There isn't a single track to skip on this album. For that, I say choose this over any other Neil Young record.
