Have you hyped up and blogged about EMA's new LP and tour yet? Well get a move on!

Distortion, you say? Rhythmic beats? Female vocals? Well, now I just have to log into my WordPress and blog about this. Oh, wow… I have two followers now! Time for a really weak music blog entry… go!

Ahem. Ex-Gowns singer and guitarist Erika M. Anderson released her first tape last year, Little Sketches on Tape, under the moniker EMA. Get it? It’s her initials. Now, in 2011 — the year of the rabbit — EMA will release her debut album Past Life Martyred Saints on May 10 via Souterrain Transmissions. Listen to “Milkman” off the album over at the Chocolate Grinder.

EMA recently toured with Kurt Vile and now she’s embarking on a tour with Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (get it?) and playing a low-key festival called Pitchfork. Uh-oh… may have just lit a match under the blogosphere’s hairy ass with that last phrase. Yeah, so to conclude: EMA is perfect to hype up, and she’s a chick, so we can be all like, “Oh, I like her music and she’s hot… blah… blah.” Thanks for reading my blog post.
