Digital Goodness

I stumbled upon Jesca Hoop and was pleasantly surprised... sort of. I think she has a great voice, an interesting sound, and a hell of potential. For me, Hoop is like a representation of a cross between Gwen Stefani circa 2000 and Lenka. Take a listen:

Now, the song starts out great! I got that flash of excitement when you think you've discovered your next song obsession, but was disappointed about 2 minutes in because I realized that my mind was wandering off.. thinking about the flurries outside my window.. my cat licking my toe... A great song shouldn't do that! I think the production of this song is where it fell short: it becomes monotonous and a bit boring half way through. By the time the song ended I was a slightly happy to be rid of the cacophony of sounds jarring my speakers. I'm intrigued enough to hunt down her album and have a listen because Jesca Hoop appears to be a force to be reckoned with, but I'm hoping the rest of the CD keeps my attention!

I kinda' like it. I actually really like the video; it's like an ISpy book come to life! A quirky American girl for a change, rather than those quirky British gals i adore so :)

The more I listen to it, the more it grows on me, but I don't think I can get past the fact that I believe it's full minute too long!
