Here’s the sixth album from confessional indie songstress Scout Niblett, who has always provided value for money in the past with her intimate fingerpicked guitar and bold, raw vocal delivery. She’s taking things down a notch on this latest record, with most songs forgoing any kind of percussive accompaniment to focus on her graceful Jason Molina-esque guitar shapes (closer ‘What Can I Do?’ apes the late great Songs: Ohia man particularly effectively) and cracked PJ Harvey meets Tracy Bonham vocal delivery.

Sometimes the songs can seem kind of bitty, in places recalling Swearing At Motorists’ diaristic vignette style, but there’s no denying there’s a powerful atmosphere throughout this album which is well complemented by Scout’s unmistakeable voice, and there’s some light relief by way of her cover of TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’ towards the end too. It’s not her most immediate album but these soulful late night torch songs will find a way to wriggle under your skin without you even realising.
