Emmy the Great's music moves effortlessly between sparse haunting folk and lush melodic pop, with thoughtful, eloquent lyrics throughout. Her second album Virtue is chock-a-block full of good songs. The BBC review described it thus: "resigned but never accusatory, it makes for poignant reassurance that sometimes feeling utterly bewildered and lost is not only natural, but a strange and unmistakeable cause for optimism." For me, the stand-out tracks are Paper Forest (In the Afterglow of Rapture), Trellick Tower (written after her fiancé ran off to be a missionary, poor lass!) and A Woman, A Woman, A Century of Sleep. I also love Edward is Dedward, We Almost Had a Baby and 24 from her first album. Her latest track, Swimming Pool seems to be moving further into electronica - it didn't grab me as much, but I think that might be because of the dischordant male duet it features. (I'm too old to fall for the 'moany singing = soulful/artistic'" line).

If you don't have a music streaming service handy, YouTube is probably the best way to check out her music. (Although I confess I'm not fussed on some of the videos - you might prefer to just listen without watching).
