by Kyle Puckhaber
Joanna Newsom’s original well refined talent and style is rare in today’s musical arena.  So often, musicians reuse the same instruments, chords and cadences recreating a song that’s already been sung.  It’s rare for a gem of original ingenuity to shine through the musical Zeitgeist of any given time period.
