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. Dope Body will act as main support on many of her North American dates, including a performance at the Hideout on September 21. Ticketing information for the Chicago show is forthcoming, but check Ticketfly for updates.
