Emma Pollock

I bought a new CD for myself yesterday: Emma Pollock's Watch the Fireworks.

As I swiped my debit card to pay for the $18 disc, I realized I haven't purchased a CD in a very long time. Remember Lemonade Stand? Guess what, music industry.... and thus we all trade CDRs, mp3s and keep our Jacksons to spend on winter boots or save for a down payment on a condo we'll never be able to afford.

I bought this CD because I love Emma's beautiful, effortless vocals on the Delgados records. The second track, Acid Test, reminds me of a specific song from the late 90s, but I can't place it. Perhaps the Breeders, Juliana Hatfield, Liz Phair... it's driving me a bit nuts.
