Margaret Glaspy released her debut full-length, Emotions And Math earlier this year and is one of our favorite new artists of 2016 (so far).

If there’s anything Margaret Glaspy can’t do, it’s not apparent on her first full-length album. “Emotions and Math” pretty much has it all—deftly written songs, effortless musical chops and a fierce attitude that is at once brazen and somehow also understated. “I don’t want to see you cry, but it feels like a matter of time,” she sings on breakout single “You and I,” a song that opens with Glaspy telling a moon-eyed suitor that he’s only there temporarily, to satisfy a need. She’s just as frank throughout the album, ruefully parsing her own diffidence on the title track, offering questionable advice from an elder’s perspective on “Parental Guidance” and asserting herself over a wonderfully abrasive guitar part on “Pins and Needles.” “I don’t want to watch my mouth,” she sings on the latter song, and that’s welcome news,
