Joanna Newsom - "81"

After Joanna Newsom released the beyond epic Ys in 2006 I often wondered how she would follow up an album of that caliber. Recently she announced that she had risen to the challenge and would be releasing a triple album, yes triple on CD as well as vinyl, called Have One On Me which she described as a blend between her first two records. The first track from the album was quickly posted on the Drag City website and another one ("Good Intentions Paving Company") has appeared today. Both tracks sound great and are building my anticipation for the full release and her upcoming tour this spring.
