After having followed her music career for years & years, I am still completely enthralled at how gifted, how beautiful Joanna Newsom & her creations are.
Her lyrics are rich & raw, and my god, watching her play the harp gives me chills like few other musicians have before.

This video says it all:
And the signifieds butt heads with the signifiers,
and we all fall down slack-jawed to marvel at words
While across the sky sheet the impossible birds...
in a steady, illiterate movement homewards.
