I've mentioned this before, but I never really took to the "don't judge a book by its cover" rule. I gleefully judge books (or cds) by their covers. And the results are usually to my liking.
Many times I'll be wandering around a record store (when I can actually find one) looking for something new and interesting and a cover will catch my eye and I have to check it out. Such is how I became a fan of Jesca Hoop. The photo of her on the cover of her debut album Kismet drew me in (the music obviously even more)...and I haven't missed a new release by her since, including her most recent (out today) - The House that Jack Built. Here's one of my favorite songs of Kismet. Enjoy!
