Note: A simple mood list made after Joanna Newsom's leaked tracks (Y's). I thought all of her tracks are a little meandering and not as good as she could have. Clearly she is trying to incorporate operatic work but the works felt directionless and hastily put together unconvincingly. (see JN hypemachine ) List above: It opens with a medieval track, Pucini (Madame Butterfly).. progressively moving into more recent works and complicated rythm section. At the center lies My Brightest Diamond balancing beat and melody and ends with Eliane Elias upcoming album with bossa nova. It's a little unusual list, but imagine facing chilly breeze in a wide open air field, facing the coming season. Enjoy.
Mini Review: Gone Away is from My Brightest Diamond debut album 'Bring Me The Workhorse'. A song album heavily influenced by Opera and classical works. Read interview here. I felt 'Bring Me The Workhorse' is one of the better work this season.
