A bone thrown from the void

I’ m completely smitten with Joanna Newsom’s late 2006 Ys album. Here is an early review by Woebot and here is the Wikipedia link.

Ys (2006) – Joanna Newsom

[Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]

Folk music and the new weird has been the hottest and hippest after replacing house, disco and electro on my musical diet. Best of 2006.

Incidentally, the vocals and harp were recorded by Steve ‘Big Black’ Albini.

From the song ‘Emily’:

That the meteorite is a source of the light
And the meteor’s just what we see
And the meteoroid is a stone that’s devoid of the fire that propelled it to thee

And the meteorite’s just what causes the light
And the meteor’s how it’s perceived
And the meteoroid’s a bone thrown from the void that lies quiet in offering to thee

    One of my roommates turned me onto this album in September of 06 and I’ve been loving it ever since!

    You chose one of my favorite quotes too 🙂
