Oh, what beauty here lies within these Walnut Whales.
I first saw Joanna Newsom with her ruffles and her harp opening for the wonderful Devendra
Banhart and Entrance. Vetiver played too. Vetiver,
they were the last time (last year) I gushed anabashedly about an underappreciated San Francisco
gem. And they're still in the rough...
And then she played with Cat Power which was perfect. The two of them one and then the other
with some blur of a band in between. It was that night I bought this
Walnut Whales. I bought 4 Walnut Whales
actually. I'm sending some to friends who might otherwise not never know.
I don't think I've ever done that before.
Go. And hear her.
