EMA - "Satellites"

My favorite album of 2011 was Past Life Martyred Saints, the gutwrenching and crazy-intense solo debut from the former Gowns leader EMA, and it wasn’t even close. After touring behind the album, Erika M. Anderson has been quiet for a while, but she’s now announced that this spring, she’ll release that album’s follow-up, which has the promising-as-hell title The Future’s Void. Even better, she’s shared first single “Satellites,” which applies the whirling fervor of her last album to a goth-industrial sensibility. It sounds amazing. Listen below. Seriously. It’s the fucking best.

The Future’s Void is coming next spring on Matador and City Slang, and I have a new most anticipated album of 2014.

  1. Burial and this on the same day, Saint Vincent two days ago. Christmas time is definitely here again.

  2. Oh my GOD am I psyched for this release. Past Life Martyred Saints is still a huge favorite of mine. I was lucky enough to share a couple beers with Erika when she returned to her old hometown last summer to visit family. Starstruck to say the least.

  3. Kudos to PLMS being your favorite in 2011. Mine too. This new track and news has made my day.

  4. I never really clicked with Past Life Martyred Saints, it felt too needlessly confrontational to me, but this is really good.

  5. Erica’s been listening to Hesitation Marks and Savages. VERY nice tune.

  6. The Grey Ship is one of my favourite songs so I’m really looking forward to this!!!

  7. PLMS was the best album of 2011. Super excited for the new one. This song’s fantastic.

  8. Best album of 2011 for me too. This is really great news.
