Probably going to get shredded for posting this here cause it'a not your typical recommendation in this thread but fuck it.


This song and the album it is a part of is one of the most beautiful creations I have ever stumbled upon.

Joanna's intense, 15 minute long multi layered stories along with unique vocals and instrument mixes is just aomething else. Each track is like a theatrical experience.

It took me a while to get over the initial 'wtf' but once you get into her style there is no going back.

a few more of my favourites;


and in particular, this album from start to finish in the car at full volume borders on religious experience for me. Shes amazing. I'm simpin hard.

She's one of greatest modern lyricists.

Leaving the City has that spiritual end of the world experience to it for me. Wistful, like the middle adepts of the world are meeting up, planning a caravan, talking about lifetimes of experiences and leaving the planet.

Hay, and a clean stall
And ivy on the garden wall
And a sign saying sold
And an old coat for the bad cold
I believe in you
Do you believe in me?
What do you want to do?
Are we leaving the city?
On the black road
Through the gold fields
While the fields are plowed
Towards what we are allowed
The bridle bends in idle hands
And slows your canter to a trot
We mean to stop, in increments
But can't commit, we post and sit, in impotence
The harder you hit, the deeper the dent
We seek our name, we seek out fame
In our credentials, paned in glass
Trained to master incidentals
Bleach our collar, leech our dollar
From our cents
The longer you live, the higher the rent
Beneath a pale sky
Beside the red barn
Below the white clouds
Is all we are allowed
Here, the light will seep
And the scythe will reap
And spirit will rend
In counting toward the end
In December of that year
The word came down that she was here
The days were shorter
I was sure if she came 'round
I'd hold my ground, I'd endure
But they alluded to a change that came to pass
And Spring deranged, weeping grass
And sleepless broke
Herself upon my window glass
And I could barely breathe, for seeing
All the splintered light that leaked
Her fissures, fleeting, launched in flight
Unstaunched daylight, brightly bleeding
Bleached the night with dawn, deleting
In that high sun, after our good run
When the spirit bends
Beneath knowing it must end
And that is all I want here
To draw my gaunt spirit to bow
Beneath what I am allowed
Beneath what I am allowed

Indeed, Though I have struggled to turn anyone on to her work. My wife calls her the 'screeching woman-child'. She says her voice sounds like someone that goes on those talent shows with an awful voice LOL.

To me her voice is amazing, I don't see it.

I like her voice. Find it more like rock vocalists in falsetto than folk/medieval, especially when she goes hard.
