vashti bunyan - diamond day

vashti bunyan is largely responsible for the second coming of the whole freak-folk scene that received so much attention last year. her only album "just another diamond day" (originally released in 1970) was reissued for the first time domestically last year on dicristina records. her songs often come across as children's nursery rhymes but trust me that's a misleading description because this is truly some beautiful traditional folk music. her latest work can be found on a collabrative ep with animal collective entitled "prospect hummer" released last week on fat cat records. she also recently signed with the label and plans to record a new album in the near future. recommended if you like: devendra banhart, animal collective, nick drake.

pretty song, though bordering on kitschy. i had never heard of her before her collaboration with Animal Collective.

thanks for the background info on her!
