Sometimes you just need to let down your guard, suspend your disbelief and go with an artist down some weird and wonderful musical/visual path. We felt that way when we saw "The Kingdom" the new video from Jesca Hoop and a track from her forthcoming second album Hunting My Dress, a project launched last fall in the U.K. (and a DC fave) and finally arriving in the U.S. July 27 via new home Vanguard. Switching from folkie melody to stark primitive rhythms, "The Kingdom" is a brilliantly off-kilter jumble of bold art held askew. Odd? Indeed. Can't look away? Absolutely. More here.
