Kori Pop took her name from...hang on a sec, that's actually her real name? Yep, you could say this girl was almost destined for a role at the performing end of the music business. And so it is that Pop has released her début album From The Outskirts, a wonderfully mellow collection of songs that brings to mind sounds as legendary as Carole King, Nick Drake, Laura Nyro and Cat Power. The album is headed by the single Nowhere Near My Heart, a song with subtle mass appeal that wouldn't sound out of place on the Juno soundtrack.

To accompany the single, Pop and her comrades have cobbled together a pretty cute music video, featuring puppets she fashioned from magazine cut outs and bits around the house. If this music thing doesn't take off, then a career on Blue Peter surely beckons.
