Scout Niblett's new album, The Fool Can Die Now, features more of the vocalist, drummer, and guitarist's sparse creations. The electrosprinkles of Kidnapped by Neptune are brushed aside in favor of Will Oldham guest spots and occasional orchestration. While much of this album shares sonic landscape with White Chalk, "Nevada" is a treatise on where I wished PJ Harvey's newest effort had settled. "Dinosaur Egg" whispers from the dark forests of the dusty Hawthorne on your shelf. Albini records brilliantly.
