Emmy the Great (Absolute)

Although she’s been tipped for big things in 2009, Emma-Lee Moss has been a near-constant presence on the London circuit for the past few years.

She’s won a devoted following in the process, but it’s unlikely to expand with the release of her debut album.

There are some pleasant tunes, played with agreeable delicacy.

But Moss’ voice rarely sounds interested in the lyrics she’s singing; probably as they’re pretty gauche. WILL FULFORD-JONES
