So good to hear Emma once more.

I don’t read the music press, online or off. Was her new album greeted with the universal acclaim it deserved – or was it the usual idiots going, “Um, this sounds a bit like PJ Harvey and a bit like Cat Power”? Oh, whatever. She’s magical to me, and will remain so. I sure hope she tours Australia soon. It’s about time we were reunited.

    The PJ Harvey and Cat Power comparisons really annoy me. it's just lazy, right? and not what it sounds like to my ears. i like that photograph so much. loose lips was such a fine looking magazine.

    The P.J. Harvey they hear is the heavy fuzz tone. The Cat Power they hear is the bare naked stark vocals. I think for dynamics and gear you could compare her to Kurt Cobain. She's magical because she means it. She is one of a few artists who's albums I buy.
