Release Notes:

If youre a fan of guitar noise, Erika M. Anderson (EMA) may already be
familiar to you. A South Dakota native, she moved to LA when she was
just 18, because she really liked Welcome to the Jungle. There she
played a mean guitar in legendary folk/noise outfit Amps for Christ
before forming the genre-defying cult duo Gowns with Ezra Buchla
Gowns' 2007 album Red State was an electronic folk and feedback
drenched masterpiece that left critics both raving and bewildered. Foxy
Digitalis compared them to Godspeed You Black Emperor while Pitchfork
compared them to the Mountain Goats. One could make the case that both
were right

There were also Gowns explosive live shows, often revolving around
EMAs spellbinding vocal delivery and stage presence. After seeing them
at a New York showcase, the Village Voice was left to succinctly
declare: Holy fucking fuck

In the wake of Gowns demise, EMA has struck out on her own. Her debut
single is the seven minute Grey Ship, backed with a glorious
seventeen minute cover of the Robert Johnson blues staple, Kind
Hearted Woman, where she claims to channel the entire history of rock
and roll, from birth to destruction. Stand back people, lady making a
grand statement, coming through

I love really long songs, really long pieces, and I wanted to see if I
could make an engaging piece using primarily just voice and guitar,
EMA explains. And I love the sound of guitar feedback. Tonal guitar
feedback is one of my all-time favourite sounds

Grey Ship is a nod to the Viking funeral ships of her ancestors, and
while pop logic dictates the tune is divided into two parts, one sunny
and strummy and the other low-lit and dramatic, the recording also
switches up from lo-fi to hi-fi. WARNING: If you are listening to this
on laptop speakers, you are not going to hear the bass drop

As EMA explains, I wanted Grey Ship to change fidelity in the middle
of the song. I imagined it being like when Dorothy opens the door to Oz
and the whole world turns from black and white to technicolour. That
change in fidelity also serves as a sonic signifier for transferring
from the earthly plane to one beyond

Regarding the monumental Kind Heart, it is not only epic, but
spellbindingly, heart-stoppingly so. To make seventeen minutes this
engaging is really fucking hard EMA admits, but EMA, shes not your
average indie guitar dabbler and makes this seem like a casual stroll
in the park

As a completely self-taught musician and home-recording engineer, EMA
obsessed with an intensity that led to heartbreak as often as

Recording this piece was probably the hardest thing I have even done
So many things went wrong that I began to think that there was actually
a curse on this song. I was like, Is Robert Johnson fucking with me
Maybe I'm not worthy to do this song Maybe this is somehow completely

I then spent months trying to mix about 20 tracks of guitar feedback
on headphones in my bedroom. The vision of this was beyond my
capabilities and budget and it almost broke my heart. Also Im such a
perfectionist I didn't want to put it out into the world unless it
fucking slayed

In the end, its her voice that makes any debate about the credibility
of her musical musings pretty much irrelevant. Evoking the
whisper-to-yell dynamics of early Cat Power but without the oft-copied
melancholy, or early Liz Phairs intimate and visceral expression, it
is a voice completely compels the listener. Her songs are filled with
harmonies and hooks that exist right in those sweet spots between
melody and dissonance. It is a knowing voice, the sound of a drunken
laugh while crying

Her forthcoming debut solo album, Past Life Martyred Saints, casually
rips up the rulebook and announces a vital new talent bound to set 2011
alight with a voice like no other
