Scout Niblett The Nottingham native gets compared to Cat Power (cold) and PJ Harvey (warm), but her sparse-and-visceral blues-based meditations really sound cousin to the emotional catharses of Shannon Wright (warmer). Her sixth and latest, The Calcination of Scout Niblett was again produced by Steve Albini, and bears his trademark elemental guitar-friendly sonics. It's harrowing fare filled with confessional monsters that, as the title suggests, burns when you get too close. With Temperance League (formerly Bruce Hazel and Some Volunteers) and Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank. Snug Harbor
