Golden Worlds

Joanna Newsom

and Bat for Lashes

can't extricate themselves from my player right now. In common they share an extraordinary talent for making music that's unlike anyone else. Comparisons to 'new folk' or Kate Bush are cheap and lazy. Both are classically trained and apply their rich imaginations to the musical world, creating a wonderful and sometimes uncomfortable place to visit.

Joanna Newsom, 'Sprout and the Bean'
Bat for Lashes, 'What's A Girl To Do'
