I just heard Joanna Newsom for the first time. I am horrified. This is the audio equivalent to the Saw movies:
With out getting into the whole "ethics of music" thing, I want to tell you how I feel about this woman's voice.
I hate her voice.
Joanna Newsom's voice has clearly inspired the bulk of all the singers I strongly dislike. All this time, I thought Conor Oberst was solely to blame,but it turns out he has a female counterpart in vocal crime.
Thank you to the angels who spared me of this pain for all these years. For all of those who protected me from Joanna Newsom's voice, those of you who knew I wasn't strong enough to hear it, I love you and hope you will see me through this new tear in my psyche. BUT TO THAT ONE CRUEL AND EDUCATING FRIEND I HAVE THIS TO SAY TO YOU:
