Love Letter For Fire by Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop is an eclectic collection of unique folk and pop. Beam brings the wit and melancholic guitar of his Iron & Wine project, whilst Hoop contributes her experimental songwriting. The male-female harmonies are beautiful and an all-star band, including Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, flesh out these delicate folk-rock ditties.
Fresh from an Iron & Wine collab and stepping out for a debut album on Subpop, Jesca Hoop’s idiosyncratic brand of singer-songwriterism befits the leftfield turn the label has taken recently. Calling to mind at once the torch-songs of Angel Olsen and the low-key experimental turns of Glasser and Fiona Apple, Hoop’s confidence even in her quieter moments is a real winner on songs like ‘The Lost Sky’ and the eponymous title track.
