If you’re a follower of Dean Blunt, you may have heard Joanne Robertson’s quietly affecting vocals on The Redeemer, Zushi, or 2017’s collaborative effort Wahalla. The Glasgow-based singer / painter’s followup solo effort lands on Blunt’s own World Music imprint with the aptly titled Painting Stupid Girls. Armed with just her voice, guitar, and some reverb, Robertson takes on fragile folk, ethereal blues, and dream pop with a delivery that’s somewhere between bedroom songwriter and seasoned blues vet. Recommended for fans of Jessica Pratt, HTRK, Arthur Russell, etc.
