Tomorrow I will have been a last.fm member for exactly 3 months! Finally my top played artists over the 'last 3 months' will begin to vary and evolve. To celebrate this, I am having milk and cookies! :D Join me as I reminisce about one of my favourite artists.
There are so many bands I really want to write about, but what with college assignments, and revision for exams coming up in 3 weeks time, I don't have a lot of time to write, so I'll write about just one; Joanna Newsom
About 5 years ago, an old friend of mine suggested I listen to an album called The Milk-Eyed Mender
, he warned me before he said anything else, he warned me that I was about to hear a strange but beautiful sound of music, more-so that I was about to hear a unique voice that could be described as (And I quote with discord) "painfully unflattering". He asked me to have patience and not to discard the music due to the strange voice as he himself had almost done.
