Currently I am wandering Europe, so I have been a bit out of touch with this blog.

As I have just experienced the Biennale in Venice, the song “Anxious in Venice” is appropriate.


Joanna Newsom

Its’ been 5 years since we have had new music from the wonderful Joanna Newsom; the early days of this website.

In the interim she has been acting in a variety of films and the Oedipus Project has flourished.

Her new disc, Divers, is due in October.

“Sapokanikan” is the early release.
