2008 release from Mascott (AKA Kendall Jane Meade), a gorgeous collection of songs that showcase an artist unhindered by expectations, pressure or obligation: an artist writing and singing for no one but herself. The result is an indie-pop stunner: intimate, relaxed and beautiful. Combining the enigmatic, '60s pop of cult favorite Margo Guryan with the mellow, modern pop of Camera Obscura, the new record reflects Kendall's growth as a songwriter, but also as a performer. Her honeyed voice, wistful and true as ever, is in perfect form. Art Project may not be the story of your life exactly, but it's probably close. That's what makes great music, and what makes Mascott's Art Project so irresistible: buried thoughts, skipped heartbeats and restless emotions. You listen, reflect and remember. And then you set your alarm for work and go to bed. Red Panda.
