Of all the new material I’ve been hearing since last fall this music sticks with me and plays in my head as much as anything I’ve heard. These unmastered songs appear on the new full length album.
As of May 2011, Davey has announced there will be a vinyl double album set containing these and other songs from The Crimea available this fall in the U.K. Check back for more info on this ongoing project.

Joanna Newsom’s performance was one of the most spectacular of the event. This recording was made almost by accident with a tiny digital voice recorder that was never meant for music, but the excellent sound quality at the festival coupled with the hush that befell the audience as they were mesmerized by this performance makes it well worth listening. Two songs by Joanna Newsom including “The Book of Right On” are featured here.
