I’m excited. In texas we don’t have what others refer to as ‘seasons.’ We have very degrees of hot and then sometimes we have a week of nice weather and then maybe some rain. Though we’ve been in drought conditions for like 12 years now so we really don’t even get the rain anymore.
Whatever! The point here is that it is a beautiful day outside. Like 55 degrees and high today of only 81 degrees. That’s some pretty sweet weather!
When the weather changes, the most important thing is to know what to wear. But the SECOND most important thing is to know what to listen to. And Milk Eyed Mender is a fall classic.
I’m not going to rehash the record but you should know it is beautiful and ethereal and not for everyone.
If you it is for you, you LOVE it but if it’s not for you, you HATE it. Very little middle ground was present when this record came out.
It’s just full of beautiful sweetness. Also check out the live version from the Joanna Newsom and the Ys Street Band EP. That tour was phenomenal. Joanna Newsom playing Ys live is one of my top 3 shows of all time…
I love Ys better than Milk Eyed Mender but it’s so nice outside, let’s not fight. However, when I want to hear Ys I actually listen to her live show from Bottletree. IF YOU ARE A FAN YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THIS. Unless of course you already have it. In which case, bravo!
Dan Sharber is a Joanna Newsom super fan yet he almost never listens to Have One On Me. I guess he isn’t the fan he thinks he is…
