Jesca Hoop - Memories Are Now album review: Alone again, most naturally
Memories Are Now
As her latest proves, however, the Californian is at her most intoxicating when on her own. By layering her voice and taking a minimalist approach to instrumentation, she makes the sort of off-kilter, feral, intensely bewitching music that is impossible not to be drawn in by, as heard on The Lost Sky, the grizzly Cut Connection, the medieval folk of Songs of Old, and the tremulous, sensual electric shimmer of The Coming.
With this record, Hoop has yet again confirmed that she should be a lot more celebrated than many of her less original peers. jescahoop.com
