EMA - I Wanna Destroy

EMA - Fire Water Air LSD

I missed her coming through with her last album, so it'd been a long stretch back to when I'd last seen Erika Michelle Anderson in action. Touring as a three-piece backed by a drummer and violinist/synth/bassist her dark meditations still flat-out rocked with feedback-drenched postpunk when called for, but also descended into more moody and electronic atmospherics. Fuelled by escapism from the terror of guns and misogyny in her homeland, the nihilistic songs from this year's Exile In The Outer Ring fit right in with the her past work as the set flipped back and forth between present and past — and closed out by reaching all the way back to a couple numbers from her previous project Gowns.
