On my search for information on Ms Newsom, who I'd not heard of until Monday, I found a decent interview at the Observer: http://music.guardian.co.uk/folk/story/0,,1929503,00.html I have also listened to a mini EP of hers. It's going to take some getting used to - very interesting sparse instrumentation and a very distinctive vocal style. I'm getting hold of her last album "Ys" which purports to have a fuller sound. Actually I think it's rather refreshing to have a "challenging" artist that doesn't seem to fit in with any of the usual bored old music clichés. Paul.
