A new Joanna Newsom record already? Don’t rub your eyes and ears just yet
—it’s “just” an EP. But with all new arrangements and performances of two
already-classic Joanna songs and the debut of a brand-new song, it’s a solid
short-play record at least — and another inspiring slice of Newsom at best!
“Joanna Newsom and the Ys Street Band E.P.” was performed by Joanna’s
road-tested band: Kevin Barker, Neal Morgan, Dan Cantrell and Ryan Francesconi,
with Joanna Newsom singing and playing her harp. Recorded and mixed in its
entirety by Tim Green at The Plant Studios in Sausalito, California, “Joanna
Newsom and the Ys Street Band E.P.” is an all-new, live and lively look into the
world of one of today’s fastest-growing young artists.
