12 Days of Music Video of the Week

8. Joanna Newsom Bridges and Balloons

Fine. Joanna Newsom is, I guess, an acquired taste. I’ve stopped trying to introduce people to her; some people just have a visceral negative reaction right off the bat and no amount of cajoling is going to change that. But from the moment I first heard her I fell in love with her voice and her style. And, as her career has progressed (her recent second album is phenomenal though very, very eccentric), I’ve become more and more impressed with her skills as a writer and her vision as an artist (in the non-cliched sense). Love her or hate her, there’s nobody else in the history of music like her.

Up next…#7


  1. That last part was the good news.
