Orchestrion Pat Metheny, CD 781.65 MET 2010 – Orchestrion was influenced by the primitive but evocative player-piano technology of yesteryear that has fascinated Metheny since he was a child.

In other words, timeless.

Have One on Me Joanna Newsom, CD 781.66 NEW 2010 – 2010 three CD release from the acclaimed singer/songwriter, the long-awaited follow-up to her album The Y’s. Featuring Ryan Francesconi and Neal Morgan from Joanna’s Ys Street Band, Have One On Me is an extravagantly packaged collection of fantastic new Joanna Newsom songs: her most colorful record to date. Joanna’s music has more of an affinity with the Folk revival of the ’60s, or the Bluegrass movement at present, than with most contemporary Folk (or Anti-Folk) scenes. Affinities aside, her style could hardly be called Bluegrass; nor does it evoke the pastoral tonalities of ’60s Folk: she sings about whalebones, sleep, grammar, mollusks, accumulation, automobiles, owls, burning boats, string collections, milk, teeth, bridges, balloons, cake, colors, and kin, all in an otherworldly, ragged-sweet voice that defies convention.
