Arrangement, production, mixing, Marxophone, Mellotron, piano, harp! Those many, many words combined ever so masterfully and exquisitely delivered by that singular voice! It's high-fucking-time for another fine splash into the Newsom pool: “Leaving The City” signifies that rest period is finally over! Further presenting the magnificence of Joanna Newsom and her long-awaited dual LP, Divers, “Leaving The City” is surging with a dynamic, boundless elegance, and following the release of the first Divers single, “Sapokanikan,” it reminds us that Newsom is a melodist above all -- an acolyte of melody and beauty in form. As with the otherworldly album cover artwork by Kim Keever, equally entrancing imagery accompanies “Leaving The City.” Dive in, listener! For one of the year’s most highly-anticipated releases is just around the corner. Come October 23rd, your patience will be brilliantly rewarded!
