I only ever saw it on Rage, so I always knew it was Andy Prieboy. I didn't know he was from Wall of Voodoo until I posted this song though. Your turn Flip.

American singer/songwriter, released this song mid 2000s and you could say she plays like an angel

Sprout and the Bean by Joanna Newsom. 

 

Afraid I've never heard of her or the song. Thanks for the clues.

I'm not expecting anyone to be an immediate fan but it grows on you. Her stuff is always lyrically interesting and I can't imagine trying to play a harp.

hypnotic song, but yeah, the voice is problematic, although she's one of many who has that style, i still don't see the appeal of sounding like an adult trying to sound like a child

 

as for the harp, if you like that, you'd probably really dig the kora, a traditional west african gourd harp

 

the video is low quality, but the sound is good

Sounds nice. 

 

As for her voice, I first thought she sounded old rather than like a child. I heard Laura Marling talking about her saying she thought she put the voice on til she watched an interview.

i was lucky enough to see him with the symmetric orchestra at the opera house... great !

 

if ms newsom speaks like she sings i am so glad i don't live in northern california

 

actually, i watched a few interviews - she talks in a much more normal voice, so it's her using the intonation for effect... which is fine, but doesn't appeal to my taste in vocals
