Emmy the Great

“And you were flicking through the pages of pornographic pages and you knew she was a faker, but there’s things that you would make her do.” The content in lyrics like these from Emmy the Great has me static clinging to every word. Simplicity fills the melodies and serene sounding vocals encircle the bold lyrical choices. Additionally, Emma- Lee Moss can be heard on my recent favorite, Lightspeed Champion‘s album Falling Off the Lavender Bridge. Emmy the Great’s debut album First Love is out via Close Harbour. As of now it is only released in the UK, but you can order it online at Tower Records if you can’t wait for the unannounced US release.

Listen for: “MIA,” “Short Country Song,” “We Almost Had a Baby,” and “War.”
