Help me identify this song... Pet Sounds + Joni Mitchell = ?

Help me find a song! It was on Sirius radio on July 23, between 10am and 3pm mountain time. It was a female singer singing over what sounded like a very Pet Sounds-like arrangement. She sounded like Joni Mitchell to me. (Maybe it was Joni Mitchell!) The song also sounded very familiar. I thought it was Both Siders, Now, but I listened to that song again and that's just guitar. This song sounded just a little more upbeat, more poppy, but equally as beautiful. Any ideas?

Is it possible you heard the Judy Collins version of Both Sides? It is much more upbeat than the Mitchell version, and has a pretty lush set of instruments behind her singing.

You might try searching here. The only version of Both Sides Now played during that time was a version by Ronnie Aldrich.

Long shot, but could it be Vashti Bunyan – Train Song? She's an English singer-songwriter from the 60s/70s. Her music is experiencing a resurgence these days, so her songs are popping up in ads, etc. Wouldn't be surprised if she were on Sirius.

Laura Marling reminds me a lot of Joni Mitchell, and is getting a lot of play in Australia. Which may be completely useless, as I don't know anything about Sirius.

Yup, Judy Collins. Thanks, bubukaba. That Vashti Bunyan song is good too.
