DOWNLOAD: EMA - Milkman (MP3)

EMA
EMA

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. kicked off a tour in Allston, MA last night (5/10), and are now in NYC for that previously-mentioned May 11th show at Mercury Lounge (sold out), and for a show on May 12th at The Rock Shop (tickets available). Both shows are with Generationals, as are most of Dale's May dates (but not at the one they're playing for kids on Sunday).

In June, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. hook up with EMA for a run of West Coast dates. Who is EMA? Well, to quote the 8.5 Best New Music she just got on Pitchfork,

"Erika M. Anderson has talked about finding "true bliss and terror" in the live performances of her former band, Gowns. The pressure-cooker atmosphere she and her partner in that group (and in life) Ezra Buchla immersed themselves in had to crack at some point, and it did, fatally and finally, at the beginning of 2010. Anderson's way of propping open an escape hatch from the bruised purging of Gowns was to retreat into herself, by gathering her collective musical ideas and putting them out under her own initials. But it's immediately apparent on hearing Past Life Martyred Saints, her debut full-length as EMA, that she's still all tangled up in "bliss and terror.""
That album, originally scheduled for a June release, is out now via Souterrain Transmissions. Grab "Milkman" from that record above. Watch the video for "California" from the LP below. Listen to her cover of Danzig's "Soul On Fire", which is going to be released as a 7-inch by Hell Yes! later this month (and is on iTunes now) also below.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.'s full-length album It's A Corporate World is due June 7 via Quite Scientific Records. All of their, Generational's and EMA's tour dates, below...

who is EMA? its underwhelming crap that pitchfork has hyped to us all. guess the joke is really on folks that buy into it like they did How to Dress Well.

generationals are so great. can't wait for these shows.

Posted by jae | May 11, 2011 11:18 AM

no, she actually put out a really good album. try listening to it, douche.

10:47 -- "I haven't been paying attention so I'm going to boo hoo about it. I like knee-jerk hating on things because it's a lot riskier to come out and be honest about stuff I like."

listened to the full record. not good.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2011 12:57 PM

so because you don't like a record or share a website's opinion then the artist/record is no good?

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2011 1:02 PM

^yes

yes.

the quality of the comments have plummeted over the years. the hummus meme is even more thoughtful than this comment.

Yeah the quality of the comments have plummeted over the years when poor little EMA has been disparaged. Cant wait for another Danzig cover.

Whereas I will not always agree with the feedback previously mentioned, at least that individual does indeed confirm a position. We have a tendency to get stuck up in the specifics and lose perception of the more prominent picture.

i really like most of the music produced by these guys but not so fond of this track

Posted by Double Stroller Reviews | July 5, 2011 4:03 AM

Evolving the sound! Got to love it! The age of true musicians are back and hopefully here to stay!

Posted by Direct Axis | July 5, 2011 4:56 AM

did not like this one very much, hope they do something better next time

Posted by Beard Trimmer | August 30, 2011 4:36 AM

They are a great band and would love to see them live if they ever make it to the UK

Posted by Stunt Scooters | November 11, 2011 5:26 AM

I think this track by EMA is good, but it certainly is not their best.

I would still love to see them live!
