iTunes Editors' Notes

For a woman with a harp, Joanna Newsom polarizes audiences with greater efficiency than an indie-rock quarter armed with oversized amps and squealing feedback. Her songs are epics, twisting and turning with unexpected detours into classical motifs that jar the rhythmic flow. Her voice has become more mannered and able to soothe like a folk maiden on her third studio album, the 18-track masterwork Have One On Me. Fourteen of the tracks pass the six-minute mark, with eight minutes being the normal range. Newsom’s removed the Van Dyke Parks orchestrations of 2006’s Ys and settled often at the piano where she takes Tori Amos’ mysticism and elusive melodicism to another level. The title track is eleven minutes that float in several different directions. The just under four minutes of “’81” skates like a reflective early-‘70s piano ballad. “Good Intentions Paving Company” opens up like a majestic Joni Mitchell For the Roses-era type piece with backing vocals and subdued backing instrumentation that suddenly bursts through in the final minute. “In California” recalls the gentle end of the Laurel Canyon folk scene of the late ‘60s. Newsom goes forward by reaching back.

Customer Reviews

Magnum Opus!

'Have One On Me' could be considered Newsom's magnum opus; and not just because of its 2-hour running time. It is because unlike any other Joanna Newsom album, she exposes herself allowing her listners to get to know her personally. Where her previous album 'Ys' (brilliant in its own right) contained deep, metaphorical storytelling backed by orchestral arrangements, 'Have One On Me' is like conversations and whispers between you and Newsom herself with both her harp and the piano. Her songs persoannly effect you and leave you with unique and untangable feelings. Though not as intricate as 'Ys', or as energetic as 'The Milk-Eyed Mender', 'Have One On Me' shows us how songs which demonstrate the soul of their singer are songs which stay with their listners forever.

Biography

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Although Joanna Newsom's Appalachian-meets-avant-garde take on folk music is her most celebrated work, her range is even more inclusive than her solo career suggests: the classically trained harpist adds a decidedly different, textural sound to Nervous Cop, the noise rock trio that also features Deerhoof's Greg Saunier and Hella's Zach Hill, and she also plays keyboards for the Pleased, another San Francisco-area band more akin to Blondie or Television than her other projects.
