Emma Pollack

Monday, October 15th, 2007

I cannot seem to stop listening to the newest Emma Pollack LP “Watch the Fireworks”. She used to sing in the Scottish band The Delgados and her wary, yet sweet voice was always the focal point. Emma does not stray far from what she did in the Delgados and this album shows how important she was in her former band – this is simply a Delgados album with Emma singing every song, which is fantastic because I would always skip the songs where that whiny guy sang. For fans of the melacholy pop of The Delgados, “Watch the Fireworks” is the album that they always hoped for.
