could she be any more captivating? i dont think so.
the other morning @ about 5 am i awoke to what i thought was an angel singing to me. its kinda crazy what you will think when you wake up abruptly from a slumber – even if it happens to be at work. the song that i woke to was joanna’s stunning “clam, crab, cockle, cowrie.” since then i have found a greater appreciation for her work and started listening in a little deeper than i had previously.
here she is performing @ bottletree in b’ham, alabama on 11.25.06. its a beautiful recording only marred by a couple glitches here and there.
7. only skin
clam, crab, cockle, cowrie from joanna newsom and the y’s street band ep

**edit thanks to everyone, all 60 of you, who have taken the time to vote for the teenage prayers but dear lord people! there have been more than 1700 of you who have been through here in the past 24 hours and all we can come up with is 60? kinda disappointing people. we can do better than that. i just know we can. thanks in advance, again.
