Jesca Hoop Music - Kismet

When the sticker on the CD is a quote from Tom Waits saying that listening to this album is a bit like running through a forest, you kinda have to get it just to find out what in the heck that means! I'm still not sure, but I do know that it's a really great little record. Intelligentactile 101 is my favorite track. Popy and freaking weird.

I only recently discovered this guy in my effort to find more Halloween music and he has quickly become one of my favorite recording artists. Havanna born Voltaire (if that IS his real name...) makes dinner music for the Addams family... His musical style is unique, with salsa rythms, surfrock/psychobilly drums and guitar and gypsy caberet violins... think Danny Elfman, Tom Waits and Cab Calloway if they all got together to jam. The song topics run the range of typical 50's horror movie fair: zombies, devils, vampires but all interpreted with a modern wicked sense of humor...dark as pitch humor that makes "evil" fun... this is music for any occassion as long as such occassion may end in a plan to injure puppies and dig up corpses.

I fell in love with Scarlett in Lost in Translation -- who didn't? That relatable, vulnerable, raspy and amazing Scarlett sounds exactly like you would imagine, though a little less sweet-sounding than her character's Brass in Pocket from the movie. Her voice is amazing, and for people who also love Tom Waits as much as I do, I think this will be a treat.
