i just wanted to inform u that today is january 18th and that 32 years ago this beautiful specimen was brought to our silly, undeserving planet (not born of a whistle or milked from a thistle at twilight, contrary to popular belief, but all horns and thorns, she sprung out fully formed, knock-kneed and upright!) and that she is fabulous. this picture is from july in chicago (1 of like 100000000 i took and never posted) and i should inform you that i’m still getting over this hour and a half that i spent staring and crying in front of her. i should also inform you that finding a picture of her not making a funny singing voice was very difficult, and i feel i need to be rewarded with album news….. BUT ANYWAY
Joanna Newsom back when she was dating Noah Georgeson. At 3:34, she starts playing what grew to be “Cosmia”. Some footage of her with Devendra Banhart, including her singing back-up on his song, “Shame”.
