Jesca Hoop “Hunting My Dress”

Yes, it’s folk, but fear not. The woman with an awesome name channels another woman with an awesome name, Hope Sandoval. Rarely the voice is a little shrill, but generally it works, and it’s a lot better than the guitarist at the farmers market.
“The Kingdom” is a complete song, full with lush sound and penetrating vocals. “Bed Across the Sea” is also worth a recommendation.
The title track is last and also has good instrumentation to go with the singing. There’s not much to say. It’s a standard folk record with a good singer and an excellent pick if you’re into this sort of thing.
