Like a squirrel preparing for a long cold winter I have hidden little musical acorns throughout my bookmarks folder. I check in on these acorns occasionally to make sure they’re still there and that they are safe. Sometimes I’m surprised when I notice a new shoot erupting from the nut. That’s what has happened recently when I visited Jesca Hoop.
Discovered originally in part by Tom Waits and Nic Harcourt. Jesca Hoop is preparing her debut full length record. The songs from her debut ep, Silverscreen Demos, lit up the proverbial switchboard at KCRW and she has since been the recipient of a minor bidding war for her next release. Her singing is at times childlike yet complex and the themes of her songs are deep and come across as very spiritual almost mystical. Buy the ep here.
