Scout Niblett-Kidnapped by Neptune



Yup, that's right. Scout Niblett. People give me all kindsa shit for listening to her and I don't really get it. Everyone I talk to about this record says that her voice grates on them, and that it reminds them of Joanna Newsom. I can't afford weed good enough to make this true. This album flows great. This album is what your sub-conscious listens to when you put on Fleet Foxes. This album reminds me of Rick's old Volkswagen. This is a great headphone travel record, which I suppose are the only kind I upload since I am constantly commuting. She gets a pretty radical guitar tone that's kinda 1996 and super super compressed in an almost obnoxious way. Guess what? I fucking love 1996 and so should you. I recommend this for anyone who is a Liz Phair fan but wishes it would tweak a bit. Get real and get this record.

I love me some Scout Niblett. Bought this album when it came out but for some reason it wouldn't upload to my computer. A nice, guilt-free download. Thanks.

She played an in-store at Reckless Broadway and I was crushing BIG TIME. I bought her tea (on the store, of course).

Side note: I hate Fleet Foxes. I like to keep my "pussy shit" set on "total" and their shit doesn't cut the bread.

this record sounds like asphalt.

and i don't have a lot of "famous" people stories, but she smoked a cigarette on my kitchen floor once and smoking wasn't even allowed inside my house.

i'm not sure if sounding like asphalt is a good or a bad thing.

i suppose it's relative.

Static Films opened for her when I was in the band. The show was at the old Bottom Lounge and I got a chance to talk to her...I'm sure I sounded like how a little kid sounds to a cute camp counselor.

Hi! Link is dead... Could you possibly reupload it sometimes? Please?
Thanks a lot!
