Description

Scout Niblett is the pseudonym of British singer-songwriter Emma Louise Niblett, a moniker inspired by the character of Jean Louise "Scout" Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird. Niblett specializes in stripped-down guitar- and drum-only arrangements. As a result, there's a bracing starkness to her music: itís blunt, confessional and unsentimental. Her latest, The Calcination of Scout Niblett, takes the minimalism to new extremes, with spare production reminiscent of another Steve Albini recording, P.J. Harvey's Rid of Me. But unlike Harvey's work, Niblett avoids release in her music, opting instead for an unresolved tension that is challenging yet undeniably compelling. - Paul M. Davis sanjose.com
