The five-member indie rock group Varlet is fronted by Lilly Scott. She got some national attention a while back as a contestant on American Idol. Scott says that experience was both a blessing -- and a curse. The group just released a new EP called “The Drifter.”

Click below to hear live versions of a couple of the songs from the album, recorded in November for our sister station, OpenAir.
