Episode 7 - Ys by Joanna Newsom

After the closeness of the vote for Mogwai, will Ys by Joanna Newsom prove more decisive? It's time to find out.

Much has been written about the ambition and beauty of this album, and miraculously Chris has even more to add, proudly proclaiming it as one of his favourite albums. Weaver and Mark are relative newcomers to this artist, Mark more so Weaver, but both could appreciate the space and scope of this album.

Yes, it may only have five tracks, and yes most of them are quite long, but the amount of songwriting nous displayed on this record is staggering. Chris clues us in on the processes behind the record, the recording and so much more.

But what do you think, is this the definitive Joanna Newsom record? And if it is, should it be added to our discography? Vote on our Facebook page and let us know if this deserves a place in our discography.
