Song: Wussy Void
Release date: 2013
i went to a joanna newsom show in 2006. after listening to a terrible celtic band open for 1+ hours, j.n. finally came on stage with her harp, only to claim that she coudn’t see her strings and storm offstage- ending her show after only playing 2 songs. milk-eyed mender my ass – she lost a fan that day. so of course i was sold on this band’s name alone. this is also just a great song.
really into all these lady-fronted bands lately [frankie cosmos, charly bliss, weaves, jenny hval, nancy pants, mannequin pussy, baby shakes, lucy dacus, mitski, cherry glazer, etc.] so this is right up my alley. that three note guitar riff gets me every time. plus the album name is super fitting for this blog…
