Last month, Screaming Females tagged Chicago for a special two-night stand at the Hideout. Both nights were tracked live by Steve Albini for their Live At The Hideout LP, which is due out on April 8 via Don Giovanni. The first taste of that album is a driving, seven-minute version of "Lights Out" from 2009's Power Move, and you can take a listen to it at the bottom of this post. You'll also find the tracklisting for Live At The Hideout below.

English musician Emma "Scout" Niblett welcomed her new album, It's Up To Emma, earlier this week via Drag City. It's her first since 2010's The Calcination of Scout Niblett, and is lead by the single "Gun." On "Gun," Niblett channels the raw power of PJ Harvey and angular guitar chops of Kurt Cobain as she sneers, "I think I'm gonna buy me a gun / A nice little silver one." You can check out the video for the track at the bottom of this post. The remainder of the album is great too, and you can grab a copy via Drag City's webstore.
Niblett's about to hit the road in Europe in support of It's Up to Emma, and will head stateside in late-August for a North American run.
