ALBUM > Joanna Newsom "Ys"

Ys (IPA pronunciation: [i:s]) is the second album by Joanna Newsom. It is the follow up to The Milk-Eyed Mender and was released by Drag City on November 14, 2006 (see 2006 in music). The album shares a name with a mythical city in Brittany.

The album features a full orchestra on four out of five tracks, with arrangements by Van Dyke Parks, who also plays the accordion. Newsom's harp and vocals were recorded by Steve Albini and the orchestra was recorded by Tim Boyle. Newsom and Parks produced the album and it was mixed by Jim O'Rourke. The recording process was completely analog, the music mixed to tape and mastered at Abbey Road Studios.
