New Joanna Newsom – “Good Intentions Paving Company”

New Joanna Newsom – “Good Intentions Paving Company”

So far people have been focusing more on Joanna Newsom’s press photos and album art than her sounds. Two songs into the three-disc Have One On Me we’ve gone from “’81“‘s plaintive, pastoral (and quite beautiful) Garden Of Eden to the upbeat, piano-pulsed, country-jazzed (and sorta Peanuts) “Good Intentions Paving Company,” which should hopefully shift the discussion. You can listen to “Good Intentions…” at As far as conversational starters: After you listen, maybe ponder your stance on Mike’s remark that “this re-branding of Joanna Newsom as some fashion model-meets-Starbucks songstress is too much for me to take.”

Have One On Me is out 2/23.
