It’s Up to Emma is minimalist English singer and songwriter Scout Niblett’s seventh release to date. Perhaps one of her most lush records, the LP came out on Drag City on May 21st. The album chronicles the phases of loss and coping in the aftermath of a failed relationship, weaving aggressive reverby guitar with lush string arrangements for a grungy, strong, and personal collection of songs.
