JOANNA NEWSOM - Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie
I fell in love with Joanna Newsom's music from the first second I heard it. Many of my friends however did not share my passion for her particularly whiney, harp-folk music. When I was in second year we all spent many sleepless nights on campus crunching away at our deadlines. The nine of us, who made up the entire multimedia class, had our very own computer lab and were usually the only nine people on campus after 3am in the morning. To ease our exhaustion we would all take turns to play a song for the rest of the group. I managed to play half of Joanna Newsom's album, The Milk-Eyed Mender and one or two songs off her EP Walnut Whales, before I was banned from ever partaking in this activity again.
