The Calcination Of Scout Niblett by Scout Niblett






First of all - How can you turn down an album with a cover like that? There's something strangely appealing to me seeing the woman behind the project smiling and waving at whoever is taking the picture while holding some flame thrower thing-a-ma-jig. You already know this album has to be pretty interesting with an album cover like that.

The Calcination Of Scout Niblett is a minimally charged album that goes from beautiful vocals, fuzzy guitar riffs, and drumming all created by Scout Niblett. Yes, she makes all the music herself. In this album she really shows off the noise rock influences from Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, and even some grunge artists like Nirvana.

What I love about this album so much is that it seems calm and you can still hear the folk side of her from previous albums, but then she comes in with these random bursts of intense energy out of nowhere. There's allot of parts on this album I didn't expect and I love surprises.
