What does lady A, Joanna Newsom have in relation to lady B, Macromantics?
Newsom listens to our own Macromantics – who’d the thunk it?! ” … My sister and I drove around doing errands yesterday and hollering along to, like, every third word on this album. That’s all we could manage ‘cos Romy, the singer, goes so fast”, says Newsom.* Macromantics delivers her lyrics with precision and speed that it really needs to be seen. She’s been an influential figure in the international hip-hop scene, having just toured the US. She’s got a bunch of dates here starting next Thursday and I recommend you all go out and watch her. She’ll get you bouncing and hollering along fo’ sure.
