Joanna Newsom - 'Instrumental 1999'

Indie's favourite harpist returns

Joanna Newsom - 'Instrumental 1999'

That title tells no lies: this is a vocal-less track that Joanna recorded in 1999, when she and her trusty Dodge Caravan were apparently a hot fixture on the Tahoe wedding-music circuit, according to label Drag City. Rather the glassy, choked filigrees of this mournful six-minute number than bloody ‘Your Song’ again.
