    "Tom Waits's babysitter" seems a fairly arresting way to describe a new singer-songwriter. In Californian Jesca Hoop's case, it's bizarrely true. Thankfully, that's not the most interesting thing about her. Hunting My Dress is a nine-song collection of beautiful, pastoral compositions that sounds as if it could be the soundtrack for an autumnal Scandinavian vampire movie. Natural elements rear their head throughout – in the lyrics and literally, as in the case of The Kingdom, which features twittering birdsong. It's good enough to compare to the more wholesome elements of The White Album, Joanna Newsom's Ys and Elbow's quieter moments (Guy Garvey actually lends subtle backing vocals to the gingerbread-sweet Murder of Birds). Enchanting in parts, Hunting My Dress sounds like the sprouting of a wondrous new talent.
