About this item

Jesca Hoop kicks off 2013 with her most recent offering The Complete Kismet Acoustic -

Jesca presents the songs from her first studio album Kismet ( US release only ) in a stripped down bare bones fashion captured in live performance. Retaining four of the songs that formed the Kismet Acoustic EP, which introduced Jesca to the UK in 2008 she now completes the batch with the remaining 6 songs from her debut record ‘as live’ recordings. This acoustic simplistic incarnation re-evokes the combination of two acoustic guitars and three voices that represents many of her live performances. The arrangement brings focus to Hoop's exceptional song craft and vocal performance . Added to this are two previously unheard tracks - Paradise and Worried Mind.

The recordings were done in two stages. The first says Jesca with “dear friends in Los Angeles USA” and the second half “with homies in Manchester UK.”
