So glad you all voted! Good work!

I've been meaning to post something by Hem for some time. Both because they are fabulous and quite unique, as well as because they are from Brooklyn. Although she had no formal training as a singer, Sally Ellyson answered an ad in the Village Voice seven years ago and Hem was formed. Their new record Funnel Cloud was recorded with the 18-piece Gowanus Radio Orchestra and feels big and lush and Midwestern spacious, while maintaining the spare purity (quite an accomplishment of colliding adjectives there) of their earlier work. Regardless, very very beautiful!
