I seem to be listening to a lot of female (and for the most part, solo) artists as of late, and I must say, Emmy the Great is one of my favorites. What I understand from Wikipedia is that she is on Drowned in Sound Recordings. I suppose she could be considered to be just another female singer-songwriter, lumped into a category with the likes of Fesit, Cat Power, and what have you. But Emmy the Great stands out, and not only because there are very few legit recordings of her. There is something about her voice that just evokes so much emotion. She is able to write lyrics that are funny, as well as lyrics that are so deep and beautiful. She is truly phenomenal. She has an EP coming out August 13. I doubt it will be available anywhere in the US except online, but I encourage all of you to check it out.
