shallow work is the work that i do

I first saw Joanna Newsom play on BBC2 in November 2004 and was dutifully impressed. Being a musical scholar she builds her songs (usually played on harp or piano) with unusual rhythms dug up from folk traditions. She sings like a child, which can be quite off-putting sometimes, but in small doses it's really very endearing!

The whole of the show that this song comes from is here ...

... and if you don't have it, you really should buy Joanna's album here
