I’d not heard of Emma Pollock before. She was previously the singer with the Delgados and this is her third solo album. There’s some great song writing on this album, it has an intelligent alternative acoustic folky kind of feel to it with some nice strings and piano arrangements. Reminds me at times of Françoiz Breut. A very mellow album that I’ll be playing a lot over the next few weeks.

N.B. This “review” was originally part of a list of albums in a monthly review post so was only a short one liner. Then I get a moment I’ll expand it out properly.

Slide guitars and banjos a plenty, but not clichéd or old fashioned, just really catchy modern tunes.

A lovely slice of "Nouvelle Chanson" - that classic French sound but with a more modern pop style.

A mellow, mainly guitar based indie affair with a psychedelic French chanteuse edge and some nice songwriting.
