The excellent third full-length from Margaret Glaspy is yet more proof that when it comes to confessional, raw indie rock their are very few who do it as well as the New York-based singer-songwriter. A composer on the level of Aimee Mann, Kristin Hersh, Evan Dando and Elliott Smith, or if we’re thinking about the following generation, Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield, Glaspy shares the same affinity with grunge/alt-rock as those artists, as well as the belief that genre shouldn’t get in the way of a well-crafted song; and so it’s to Glaspy’s credit that she doesn’t hide her obvious talent as a musician in an attempt to achieve some kind of ‘indie cool’ points. A strange thought, granted, but as a fan of Gilmore Girls with a pathological dislike of the mawkish nonsense that is the theme tune, it occurred to me that if they replaced it with, say, Echo the Diamond’s awesome opener ‘Act Natural’, then the show would instantly fix its one naff aspect – being as it is the perfect musical and lyrical embodiment of Rory and Lorelei’s winning mix of knowing humour, heart, screwball smarts and fierceness.
