[2005] Josephine Foster - Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead You

listen to the song:

Beneath Joana Newsom, Devendra Banhart, Iron & Wine and others, Joesephine Foster is one of the leading voices in the so called New Weird America genré, wich consists of a mix of alternative folk/songwriter and a remembrance of the psychedelic folk of the 60's and 70's. maybe some of it rooted as well in the freaky 90's folk as well (The Iditarod, Stone Breath, In Gowan Ring etc. ...). No Questions, Josephine's "Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead You" (where this title-track comes from) album is miles ahead of her other releases, wich are quite ... let's say, very strange (except for the "Little Life" EP). The Hazel Eyes album I could play over and over again. it's so deliciouse! it's a bit like Zen, turning everything topsy-turvy.
