Never heard of Cross Record? Well, neither have most others, but hopefully that’ll change soon. On new single “Cups In The Sink,” Maine-based art-school grad Emily Cross sings in a gorgeous, unaffected tone, rightly compared to Cat Power’s Chan Marshall and Lower Dens’ Jana Hunter in her press kit. When surrounded by a dark, intoxicating ambient wash of unusual acoustic and electronic instrumentation, it’s haunting and riveting stuff. Watch/listen to “Cups In The Sink” below via Lay Flat, and check out Cross’s other music, as well as her artwork, at her website. Her new LP Be Good is out this August; pay attention and don’t let this deserving singer-songwriter slip through the cracks!
