Scout Niblett, 1939 Ensemble, Genders 

When: Thu., Aug. 2, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12
Judging from the preview provided by a recent local performance, the next album we hear from Scout Niblett stands to blow things apart. Her last release, 2010's The Calcination of Scout Niblett, demonstrated the level of finesse the prodigious Brit-turned-Portlander has achieved after years of releasing grunge-inspired, guitar-based meditations, and her newest songs, as seen in live performance, take it to the next level. Niblett is known for her beseeching, falsetto-reaching warble as well as furious prowess on the electric six-string, but from what I recently witnessed, the combination of her singular guitar style, her utterly livid lyrics, and her siren-call delivery are preparing to reach their zenith. Make sure you are listening. MARANDA BISH
