Scott Malcolmson

Not to be confused with South Park’s walking punchline Scott Malkinson, this former Winnipeg resident made this five song folk EP here last year with a handful of musical friends. Fleshed out with piano, cello, ukulele, pedal steel, subtle harmonies and drums, this acoustic guitar slingin’ singer’s new disc kicks off with the upbeat “Tooth and Nail”, takes it down with “This Winter Chill” and keeps the tempo there with “Nothing But Time”, which takes a Nick Drake delivery and places it in a Being There-era Wilco popper. Unfortunately there isn’t much diversity on this handful of tracks, with the bulk of the songs being very precious/low-key, but they all work, finding Malcolmson clearly playing to his strengths. Delightfully inoffensive folk pop from a confident new voice.
