Joanna Newsom

Thanks to Newsom’s love-it-or-hate-it voice, a creaky eggshell of a thing that splits the difference between crone and infant, some people will pass this one over without even listening. But, it’s their loss. Neither as rough-hewn as her debut, nor as baroque as the five-track, hour-long Ys, Have One On Me is Newsom at her best: precious without being cloying, subtle without being indecipherable, beautifully written and sweetly played. This is good enough to turn even the biggest haters into fans.
