    Are there any more Joanna shows coming up besides the Pitchfork Festival in July? If a new album is done, I'd bet there'll be some new stuff played and maybe she'll make a comment or two on when new material will be out.

    Did we know much about HOOM before its release? That's around the time I started exploring her music and fell in love with everything.

    I love the way they did it with that cartoon strip and then you're right, the album came out at the end of the following month. I thought it was just right.

    That cartoon strip takes on so many new levels of meaning when you view it after listening to the album for 3 years...

    You poor little cousin
    I don't want your dregs
    A little baby fussing all over my legs

    Joanna played four new songs at the Pitchfork Festival -- Diver's Wife, Look and Despair, and two more. She didn't say anything about an album, but she said, "I wasn't quite sure what to play tonight because I have a lot of new songs, but no one comes out just for the new songs."

    I figured out lyrics to the short new song (it's just over 2 minutes long and on piano) but some are questionable because of the recording quality. I'll spoiler it in case no one wants to hear/read new material yet.

    New song (piano)



    New song (harp)

    Buried somewhere in their rambling August newsletter, Drag City throws this vague little tidbit out there, which may or may not be related to Joanna. I don't know anything about her label so maybe they are talking about a totally different musician/band.

    Speaking of your sweet, stupid expectations, there's one more record we're talking about throwing on the November date that you can't know about yet, which means we can't tell you. And given that this is a NEWS-letter, fuck! That BLOWS. Our mind, that is. Because that BLOWS - as in, SUCKS, that is. Gee, when did blow jobs become such a estimate of disappointment? That kinda snuck up on us. This seems unfair to all of us who enjoy a good blow job! Hm, we'll have to exploit this further in newsletters down the line. Fortunately, there will be many newsletters in our future, while we sell all the INCREDIBLE new releases mentioned above - along with the one we didn't mention 'cause we can't - and lots of other ones too.
    So, aside from that being totally obnoxious, wouldn't it be lovely to have a November release?

    Yeah, too cute by half. But forgivable, being that there's absolutely no chance that they're talking about anyone but Joanna. Yay!

    I REALLY hope this means a new album in November. My birthday is in November, so if it's true, I'm gonna take it as a birthday gift from the universe. Oh I really really really hope this is true. I could really use some new Joanna right now.

    Considering the four new songs she's performed live, my hopes are HIGH. Hell, she could release rough demos of those four and flesh out the rest of the album with field recordings of farts and it'd still be one of the best of the year.
