29 Oct 2013, 10:33am
HADESTOWN is a work of true genius. heard it yesterday for the first time and was blown away!

so fuckin underappreciated
29 Jul 2013, 8:33am
Amen to the post below. Hadestown is a masterpiece! Anaïs Mitchell is such a brilliant artist. ♥

HADESTOWN is a work of true genius. Anais is one of my all time favourite artists.
18 Jul 2013, 1:29am
I absolutely love her.

So perfect <3

Young Man in America is one of my 12 albums of '12: http://wp.me/p15szY-EK

Seen her live twice and both performances were phenomenal. The first time I saw her, she opened for Ani DiFranco and gave a stripped-down performance with just her acoustic guitar. It was so heartfelt and I fell in love with her music immediately. On her tour with Bon Iver, she had a full band and it was cool to hear her new songs come alive on stage. She is severely underrated and overlooked.

Her lyrics seem to be still as solid and intriguingly beautiful as ever, but I think I'm mostly drawn to her early albums because of her singing style back then. She sounded way less Joanna Newsom-ey, maybe her more childlike affected way of singing since The Brightness was conscious, maybe not. Either way, though it wasn't a bad change at all (some newer songs probably wouldn't work as well as they do if recorded 8 years ago), I usually find her old voice more appealing.

I got to meet her when I saw her open for Bon Iver. She is so sweet and so humble. I'll never forget the night I got to meet her.
13 Sep 2012, 9:40pm
She is brilliant. Her tour with Bon Iver will get her more publicity, I'm sure.

Sublime set at the Ottawa Folk Festival. She's won me over!
28 Jul 2012, 5:03pm
I saw her live today she was exceptional!

Young Man in America is really growing on me, but Hadestown remains unbeatable. I keep on discovering new things in that album. :)
10 Jun 2012, 2:28pm
young man in america now on spotify us woohoo
26 May 2012, 6:47pm
Hadestown it's an amazing album!...I could say that could be named as the Pink Floyd's The Wall of Indie-Folk

Does anyone know of any plans to release Young Man in America on LP?
24 Apr 2012, 2:19pm
The only reason I can see that Anais hasn't been a huge success commercially is the overtly political edge to her lyrics. Voice to die for... the "real deal" so far as authenticity and creativity are concerned (take your fake Del Rey and shove it!). Hadestown is an extaordinary and exceptional album... She'll have her day. Her own version of "Why We Build" on Youtube is genius... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TUfxx2JrqY - but then so is "Wedding Song" "Young man..." and "Shenandoah" (...OK rant over - I'll go back to listening the Hip Hop, Jazz and Soul) ...
20 Apr 2012, 1:02pm
Hadestown is great.
18 Apr 2012, 4:26pm
She's an amazing songwriter but I don't really care for her vocals. They remind me of Duffy who I can't stand. She falls in that category of artists for me where I can appreciate her music but I don't truly love it for one aspect or another.
18 Apr 2012, 5:16am
"Young Man In America" Is absolutely flawless! Her music so unique and beautiful, I just can't get enough, Such a beautiful voice.
12 Apr 2012, 3:34pm
hahahah sure she has a distinctive voice, but it's hardly Victoria Williams!
12 Apr 2012, 6:55am
Her voice takes a bit getting used to, but the lyrics and music make that totally worth it. Really enjoying Young Man in America now.
11 Apr 2012, 5:16am
I heard she had a new album and thought it would be hard to follow Hadestown, but she nailed. The new record is pretty great.
4 Apr 2012, 9:52am
Damn it, tour promoters, get a map of Britain, notice that big thing in the middle called Birmingham and book some bloody Midlands gigs!
26 Mar 2012, 9:05pm
Happy birthday Anaïs!
19 Mar 2012, 9:41pm
Young Man In America is tied right now with Bloom for AOTY for me. We'll see how the new Knife album shakes things up.
15 Mar 2012, 1:32am
Her own album doesn't have the dot over the i in Anais anymore...more confusion.
12 Mar 2012, 6:44pm
This is the most interesting album I've heard in quite a while.
10 Mar 2012, 10:01am
For me "Hadestown" is better.
8 Mar 2012, 1:59pm
3 Mar 2012, 9:53pm
Really, don't you guys prefer Hadestown?
3 Mar 2012, 4:14pm
holy hell the new album is amazing.
1 Mar 2012, 12:48am
So in love with her, my God.
29 Feb 2012, 11:55pm
Young Man in America is fantastic.
24 Feb 2012, 2:41pm
Check out our interview with Anais here: http://thedumbingofamerica.net/2010/08/23/fall-in-love-with-anais-mitchell/
22 Feb 2012, 1:51am
Young Man in America... holy shit. Blow in like a hurricane, everyone will know my name.
19 Feb 2012, 2:26pm
Becoming one of my all time favourite artists...
17 Feb 2012, 2:53am
Totally disagree as well. It's her most personal, human, alive and scintillating album since "Hymns For the Exiled". I didn't even care for "Hadestown". I want her voice and her emotions. A group effort that sounds more like a stage musical than a folk recording has very little to do with that. This is a great direction she's heading in with "Young Man in America".
16 Feb 2012, 2:22pm
I couldn't disagree more with that review
14 Feb 2012, 12:35pm
Do you guys agree with this review of the new album? http://www.crackintheroad.com/music/14871-review-anais-mitchell-young-man-in-america/
13 Feb 2012, 11:25am
New album is on Spotify! I had no idea how I missed out on the fact she was releasing new material for so long but since I found out 2 weeks ago it quickly become my most anticipated!
12 Feb 2012, 2:34pm
really liking her new album
