Anika recommends: Ema and the Ghosts

Who? Californian multi-instrumentalist Ema and some not-so-spooky ghosts. She released 6-track EP Boy In The Milkbox last year but it’s a bit tricky to get your hands on it. You may have to do some online rummaging to find the songs, but it’s worth it.

Why? She plays bouncy accordion tunes with some ukulele and glockenspiel. She also has a rather splendid voice and sings songs about flea circuses and ice cream. If that doesn’t win you over I don’t know what will.

Watch: A cover of Leonard Cohen’s Memories performed in a sunny Californian park… and it has a whistle solo!
