the moscow coup attempt – sprout and the bean

Cover of Joanna Newsom’s song “Sprout and the Bean”, with vocals by Vera Ostrova — sans the shrillness of the original and with a beautiful video — off a 2010 compilation album called Versions of Joanna.

“And as I said, I slept as though dead, dreaming seamless dreams of lead.
When you go away, I am big-boned and fey in the dust of the day, in the dirt of the day.”
