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.

This is a benefit cd for the Lone Fir Cemetary in Portland, Oregon which is one of Portland's oldest cemetaries and a landmark for its beauty - both architectural and horticulturally. The cd includes 15 tracks by various local musicians including Adam Shearer & Adam Selzer, Al James, Amelia, Chris Robley & The Fear of Heights, Holcombe Waller, James Beaton, Jesse Emerson, Jim Brunberg, Leigh Marble, Matt Sheehy, Nick Jaina, Pete Krebs, Ritchie Young, Storm Large, The Taciturns. Each song pays tribute to a particular colorful resident of Lone Fir, a list which includes some very notorious and sometimes unsavory citizens of Portland's early and often horrific history. It really is a fantastic cd with songs about prostitutes, shanghaiing, thievery, drunkeness, suicide and axe-murderers... In particular check out "Plastic Flowers" by James Beaton...amazing. And it all goes to benefit the Friends of Lone Fir who keep the historical landmark and treasure clean and safe and beautiful for us and for any visitors to our city (not to mention the hundreds of permanent residents of this quiet park)...

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.
