the sprout and the bean

Recommended Posts

This video by Joanna Newsom takes me to a magical place. The harp playing is very hypnotic and pulls me back to an earlier time, the imagery slides in and out of normal reality. I love it. It flows.

 

"The difference between

the sprout and the bean

it is a golden ring

it is a twisted string"

Yeah she's dreamy. She almost makes me believe in pixies, fairies, elves, etc. Have you heard her brand new album "Ys"? It is so very beautiful.

I've got "Ys" on order as no store in my small town has it.

 

She really draws in a mythic/magic energy from the low astral. It is wonderful to have this sort of shaman making music, with most lyrics representing just this later heaven life.

 

It's kind of funny that a review I read derided her lyrics as the least sensible lyrics since the group "Yes", when I'd just been thinking that her lyrics were the most magical/mythical that I'd heard since Yes's album "Tales from Topographic Oceans" (based on the some Hindu scriptures).

 

"What happened to this song we once knew so well

Signed promise for moments caught within the spell

I must have waited all my life for this

Moment moment"
