EMA - "Satellites" (stream)

by Nigel Spudes

11 December 2013

EMA, aka Erika M. Anderson, formerly half of Gowns with Ezra Buchla, released her excellent, heart-smashing debut, Past Life Martyred Saints, in 2011 and then faded from view.
 

Now she returns with “Satellites”, from new album The Future’s Void, due out in Spring 2014 from Matador in the US/City Slang in the UK. More rigidly electronic than most of Past Life Martyred Saints, “Satellites” is every bit as emotionally present, and shows off Anderson’s strong, snarling vocals against the throb of her production. Raw, powerful and always engaging, EMA is every bit as strong here as she was when we left her two years ago.
