    Downloaded Ys. I've started listening to it and I can totally hear why you're in love with it. The orchestration is quite beautiful. I won't be able to listen to the whole thing now (I have to leave soon to shoot a short film) but I'm sure I'll come back. As of now, I think its being more enjoyable and full than what she's done before. I'll let you know my final verdict soon enough.

    And about Joanna, you're right. I was in love with her a few years back.. But basically dropped out of the New Weird America movement and completely forgot about some dear artists I love, Joanna being one of them. I'll go and listen to her other stuff (I just really love the Book of Right-On).

    I've only found one link. I'm still not quite sure. Maybe my fanboyism has come to an end. Well, not really. I have to give it a fair listen. The first time there were too many people around and too much to do to just .. listen. I really like Last Night at the Jetty. I think its one of his best up to date. But I've been listening to most of the singles, so I kinda know some of the songs in the album by heart. I'll try and send you a link as soon as I can.

    I am going to jump into Bluebeard now so I can hopefully develop a clearer sense for the song. She's tough in that you need to spend a long time with her. It's very close to poetry in that sense. It's not enough to just hear it; you have to swim in it for a while. I think the point in relation to the regression of man is merely a showing of this particular man and his degradation of a person in front of her very eyes. At no point can he gain a stranglehold on his failings. In the larger sense, it could be argued that in an age of such information and an age where the voice of women is at its strongest, the continued failure of these particular men and resulting suffering of women is particularly harrowing. 'You've been given every chance to set yourself free from your learned oppression for half the universe, and yet still here you are.' A kind of stagnation in a time where there is no excuse, possibly.

    I wasn't aware you had previously asked, Melissa. Here you go: http://www.tunetheproletariat.com/ (It's three friends (from all corners of this globe) just writing about the music we like. Nothing is a review as such, just a recommendation, and we've been doing it for almost a year now for the simple fact of fun. I think the other guys do it to strengthen their fiction, too, so it suits all our needs and of course our love for music.) If you ever want to write a piece on Joanna for it (or anyone else) or even repost something from 'All The Birds', then you can do so and we'll link back to your blog. The new Little Dragon song is really great. I'm especially excited because I've heard (live and otherwise) four songs from the record, and it's hugely impressive so far. It could be said that the song released yesterday is the least impressive so far (a guide to the quality of others), and Yukimi is really creating her own distinct voice lyrically, so it's fun to watch the band develop.

    Melissa, saw your post on HTE. Can't say that I disagree. Seems like this always happens on music forums I go to when something new comes out. You can tell a lot of them are people that are just looking to rile others up and don't really have anything serious to contribute. Hopefully the lot of them will migrate somewhere else and you'll resume posting in the future. Rock on \m/

    She comments on not only the lack of progression, but the regression of man. It is almost the ultimate commentary on the differences between men and women - or the difference between a woman and an abusive man. (Not to lump us all in the bucket labelled “failed”.) It has been a long, long time since I’ve felt so intrigued by a song. I felt that each section or verse acted as a chapter; a development of feeling. I haven't even touched on the ending and still that was all so convoluted (especially as I wanted to stay true to my initial reading of the song), but my thoughts have developed and shaped since reading your piece. Apologies. I'm just going to go listen to it again.

    She admits she cannot attest to the experience of superiority, although at this early stage she still holds an attachment to this man, but questions of his abuses are shaping: why is he like this? Then there’s a conflict of thought: are the failures of man socially constructed or are men born with these failures intact? There’s sheer bewilderment: why do you destroy the one who could carry your child, the one who could provide care for and love you. To me, her place in the “palace” is just another witty showing of her material positioning. She is furniture and she feels it; material and disposable as a woman. Open to abuse. Superfluous to say, but there’s real violence throughout.

Über mich

Feminist and radical activist killjoy.

"And then the slow lip of fire moves across the prairie with precision.
And somewhere with your pliers and glue you make your first incision.
And then in a moment of almost unbearable vision, doubled over with the hunger of lions,
'Hold me close' cooed the dove, who was stuffed now with sawdust and diamonds."
—Joanna Newsom

Nam Sibyllam quidem Cumis ego ipse oculis meis
vidi in ampulla pendere, et cum illi pueri dicerent:
Σίβυλλα τὶ θέλεις; respondebat illa: ἀποθάνειν θέλω.
—Petronius
