I love love love discovering new music. I saw the Eels play a GREAT show in October, and the opener was the uber-talented, unknown to me at the time, Jesca Hoop. Similar vein to Imogene Heap or Regina Spektor with a very haunting voice and artistic arrangement. A work friend of mine gifted me her latest album {he was at the show, too} and it's been my soundtrack for 5 days straight. The album is called Hunting my Dress and it's so perfectly FALL. Even my husband, who's not very open-minded to female artists, said so. This music fits fall. Word.

{PS, I think this [The Kingdom] video is so, so beautiful. Can someone set up a complete costume and makeup day? I could use some gold body paint in my life.}
