SXSW 2k8 Preview: Emmy the Great
Myspace // "The Hypnotist's Son" (Live From Black Room Sessions) [mp3] // "Easter Parade" [Video]
We first wrote about Emmy the Great well over a year ago, so we thought it would be a good time to catch up with her, especially since she'll be in Austin this year for SXSW. While still unsigned, she has self-released an EP, My Bad, which was recorded in her home with various collaborators and friends, including Noah & the Whale and Dev of Lightspeed Champion. Some might call her "anti-folk," but she's too good to be put in the same category as the awful Kimya Dawson.
