Two Musicians to check out – Kelley Stoltz and Joanna Newsom

Saw John Cale at cafedunord on Friday. Impressive energy for a 60yo. I wonder what his secret is? – playing Venus in Furs at his age … However, he was eclipsed by SF singer-songwriter, Kelley Stoltz, Mercury Rev-esque and harmonium to boot. His site has some great MP3s – I particularly like Perpetual Light

And then there’s Joanna Newsom, who I overheard in GiantRobot and had to immediately go and buy. BBC/collective sums her up well: “… she blends a delicate, deranged voice with lapping harp technique and otherworldly charm”. Bjork-esque but weirder … her album, The Milk Eyed Mender is a perfect antidote to a 101 commute.

    Joanna Newsom and Giant Robot seemed to go so well together.
