EMA rises from Gown's ashes

Once upon a time there was a girl vs. boy driven west coast 'noise pop' band that actually filled the shoes of such a stratifying, silly genre-modifier as that, conjoining elaborate structure and blissfully unhinged texture.

We said goodbye to Gowns nearly a year ago. Erika Anderson's EMA project rises from the ashes, pretty ebulliently, with a seven-minute mini epic that grows from a low-tide folk dirge into a full-on viola 'n drum hits kind of band. No wrong turns: everything feels in its careful place here, and we look forward to what comes next.
