2016 Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For!
180g Vinyl Double LP!
A round, a chant, an incantation...from the flight of the first whippoorwill to the departure of the last nighthawk, Divers is a wholly engaging, encompassingly lyrical body of song and thought and love and life and playful and personal music in space. Melodiating on the passages of time and life and the abstract ways in which they moves within us, Joanna has rendered a cycle of highly charged musical moments that resonate and sound like no other. In other words, just another Joanna Newsom album! Divers is a single album, spread over the dual-vinyl format for sweet-sounding reasons.
I remember thinking Joanna Newsom was unlikely to top her 2006 masterpiece, Ys. I was wrong.Features:
