Nearly two years after her American Idol run, Lilly Scott is set to release her debut with Varlet

Drifter was tracked this past summer by Snake Mountain's Joe Ramirez and Andy Wild (A Tom Collins), mixed by James Barone (Pacific Pride, Tjutjuna, Tennis) and mastered by Brian Marcus (Tjutjuna, Samurai Buck). We've had the chance to listen to three of the EP's six tracks, and from what we've heard, the songs are varied and utterly bewitching. Scott's voice is in dependably fine form on tunes like "Eastern" and "High Heels" and more than ably backed here by Kitezh's Cole Rudy, Vaughn McPherson, Will Duncan and Lilly's brother David Scott on bass. Our favorite cut thus far from the record is "In My Pocket." Fans of Best Coast will eat this one up. Have a listen.
