Biography

Scout Niblett is Nottingham, England's answer to all the brash, intelligent, and honest female songwriters that emerged from America during the early 21st century. Continually compared to Cat Power and fellow countrywoman PJ Harvey, Niblett proved her own merit with a strong, stark voice and a penchant for spartan songs containing only drums and vocals. She also became known for her ... Read more in Amazon's Scout Niblett Store

Editorial Reviews

After four albums that garnered regular (and not unwarranted) comparisons to both Cat Power and PJ Harvey, British born, Oregon based singer/songwriter Scout Niblett has turned her sights to something a bit more exploratory. Throughout This Fool Can Die Now, there's a subtle but unmistakable experimental feel very much akin to Scott Walker's more recent albums, such as Tilt and The Drift. Of course, it's not as if these 14 songs sound like Walker -- no one sounds like Scott Walker but Scott Walker -- but there's a similar fascination with minimalism, repetition, and dramatic dynamic shifts, and throughout this album, Niblett experiments with her vocal phrasing and range in a very Walker-like fashion, veering unexpectedly from a flirtatious coo to raw, throaty shrieking to a Karen Dalton-like folk-blues wail. The resulting songs aren't completely foreign to Niblett's longtime fans -- the opening "Do You Want to Be Buried with My People?," a duet with Will Oldham, is familiar countrified alt folk -- but there is a bracing fearlessness to This Fool Can Die Now that finally fully differentiates Scout Niblett from the rest of the "weird folk" boomlet.

Wow! What a record, I'm a huge fan of her work, and really loved Kidnapped, but I was really stunned by this record, I guess I always knew she could come up with such an awesome collection of songs, and here it is. It's the record Cat Power and PJ Harvey should be making.

Kiss with Will Oldham is transcendent, and the video for Kiss is one of the best music videos I've seen in years, It's practically high art. Nevada, Dinosaur Egg, Yummy, and Fishes And Honey are just a few of the many highlights. It such a beautiful, bleak and quirky album. The 2007 musically highpoint.

Scout Niblett's "This Fool..." is minimalist, forceful and contains dark songs punctuated by cathartic eruptions. (Steve Albini is the producer.) The arrangements and melodies are spare and odd, but everything hangs together well. It's not party music, but it's worth listening to with the lights off. "Dinosaur Egg" is the sole glimpse of whimsy, and despite the heavy treatment, it is hilarious.

Scout delivers again. The songs are well crafted and are really beautiful with the rhythm section backing of Kristian Goddard and Chris Saligoe. The killer tracks though are the duets with Will Oldham. Listen to "kiss" and forgive the falsetto, This Fool Can Die now is a sweet work of passion.
