Virtuous flower

Emmy the Great, "Iris", off her new album Virtue. Her first album First Love was great, a sly wicked album that stuck its daggers in its targets with cunning under a cute disguise, not a bad song on it (a few that were merely good rather than great, but no clankers). I'm a bit more ambivalent about this new album, it is a "breakup album" because her boyfriend decided he loved Jesus more than he loved her, and there's a bit of bitterness and some places where she's clearly forcing it.
