mp3: EMA – Milkman
EMA, aka Erika M. Anderson formerly of Gowns, released her debut album Past Life Martyred Saints yesterday and it’s a scorcher. Packed with raw emotion and unnerving, potent vitality, this is truly one of the most exciting debut records to surface in a long time. Though clearly influenced by legendary female rockers like Patti Smith and Kim Gordon, EMA captures modern themes in such a pure and honest way, she is clearly standing on her own solid footing as an artist.
Check out the video for the previous single “California” below. Past Life Martyred Saints is available now via Soutterain Transmissions.
