3 Songs: On Repeat

1. EMA - "The Grey Ship" (EMA is the new solo project of ex-Gowns singer/guitarist Erika M. Anderson whose debut album Past Life Martyred Saints is due May 10th on Souterrain Transmissions. The haunting first single begins with sparse accompaniment before building and exploding with a big bass drop into a surge of violin and distorted guitar on the epic 7-minute track.)


2. Chikita Violenta - "Roni" (Layered 90's guitar tones, thundering drums and bright, quirky melodies prevail on the Mexico City band's impressive U.S. debut Tre3s out now on Arts & Crafts. Check them out at SXSW also!)


3. The Booze - "Kick Me Where It Hurts" (Skuzzy guitars and huge vintage organs highlight the first single from the Atlanta band's new album At Maximum Volume which is a throwback to 60's British R&B like the Kinks and Rolling Stones but with a modern twist.)
