EMA's Past Life Martyred Saints Takes on a Life of Its Own

Erika M. Anderson, project named EMA, is a digital artist, guitar destroyer, and voice-activation enthusiast rolled into one. Formerly of Gowns, her new album Past Life Martyred Saints is blowing up the internet as one of the most raved about albums of the year. These magnificent sounds draw on neo-psychedelic roots that revel in taking lo-fi to hi-fi within individual songs, virtually as a whole new medium of communication, clearly as a refreshing idiom of alternative rock. You will listen to this one many times.

Pitchfork: Album Reviews: EMA: Past Life Martyred Saints 8.5/10 (best new music)
