Emma Pollock – “Paper and Glue” 7”
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2009
Emma Pollock is best known as one of the founding members of the fantastic Scottish alt-rock group the Delgados. Through the band’s ten year run they released six albums, but my introduction to the band (and really, the only work of theirs I’ve listened to) as through their career-spanning 2006 double-disc Peel Sessions compilation. Both tracks here play like standard pop-based singer-songwriter fare. Aimee Mann is a good touchstone. Though Pollock’s vocals are lovely and her songs also lovely, this seven-inch is more lovely little else. There are worse things than being lovely. Have I mentioned this is just lovely? Lovely lovely lovely.
