Bridges and Balloons by Joanna Newsom


Since no video exists for this song, here is a live version that sounds a lot like the one on the album.

This simple little ditty is played on the old-school harp. It’s sung very child-like and even the lyrics  with references to dirigibles and the Chronicles of Narnia evoke childhood memories.

Joanna Newsom enchants with her unique blend of voice, and instrument. Although she hates when her voice is referred to as child-like, it’s easy to hear why. She’s released 3 Albums so far and not since Harpo Marx has the harp hit the big time.
