Now I’m well…ish, I’ll edit.
Long since I discovered some Golden Apples of The Sun, bobbing along, have I been a Newsom fan sold on the old-new-sweet-weird-sound. Tis a beautiful thing and twas a beautiful thing and it doth spring – not eternal, but certainly – vernal.
Now, her last Long Player, Ys, was a sight and a sound to behold however it charted a whole expanse of its own – vectors in the constellations of my liver were marked out as orchestrated for that album and I loved its engraving.
Thus I await the newest with trepidation because this new track sounds a lot like the path I thought Newsom would – but didn’t until now – take. That route being back in time a little and back toward a sounds reminiscent of the Old Weird America’s Judee Sill.
I will spare you too much of the why and give you the evidence:
now see evidence B:
It’s the country orchestration over the classical, it’s the simple drumming that could a chorus with coconuts. The Angels above may not be the best example but Sill’s entire first album is.
Go listen, learn and love.
