“I’m not your mother, I’m sticking around,” Margaret Glaspy declares on “One Heart and Two Arms,” from her recent EP, Born Yesterday. “I’m not your father, trying to screw the whole town.” The New York singer confides these sentiments over a low, ominous electric guitar that snarls like a wildcat between verses before pulling back its claws as she begins crooning again. The song stirs up a more intriguing sense of menace and danger than Glaspy’s typically laid-back folk-pop songs, such as “Before We Were Together,” which is centered around a more lyrically typical “I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t” cliché. Although the EP’s introspective ballads such as “I Love You, Goodnight” possess a certain intimate charm, Glaspy is far more interesting when she turns things up, as on the occasionally harder-rocking passages from her 2016 full-length album, Emotions and Math.
