On the follow-up to 2001's Sweet Heart Fever, Emma Louise Niblett (aka Scout Niblett) bestows listeners with more of her irreverent, lo-fi creations. The second song, "No-ones Wrong (Giricocola)," features some bluesy, early Cat Power-like brash instrumentation and a relentlessly focused vocal delivery, serving listeners with the warning that this 13-track disc is sure to be a bumpy ride, and it is. Early on and throughout, Niblett offers acoustic solo ventures, and intriguing ventures into indie rock with guitarist Chris Saligoe and drummer Pete Schreiner. Her sly, relaxed vocals on eerie efforts like "Until Death" and "Fire Flies" (featuring a whimsical eukelele) quickly stand out as Niblett's strength. "I'll Be a Prince (Shhh)" and "Boy" surely conjure up comparisons to PJ Harvey, but such a correlation is not fair to either artist. Niblett's uncanny knack for creating dizzyingly original and poetic songs keeps listeners interested simply because they know she is not one to give in to convention. Wildly creative guitar lines on "Drummer Boy" might serve as the crescendo of this rollercoaster of an album, as the song also includes Niblett's most feverish vocals of the disc. "It's All for You" is an offbeat, unconventional drums-and-vocals riot that encompasses Niblett's spirit. The title track ends the disc and serves as an exclamation mark on Niblett's "love me or leave me" approach. As the eukelele chants behind her, she belts out a repetitive series of poetic affirmations, solidifying herself as one of the most unique voices in independent music. The British Niblett embraced American indie avant-garde on I Am. Steve Albini recorded I Am at Electrical Audio Studio and Secretly Canadian Records released the disc in September 2003.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.
