WATCH: EMA + THE CREATORS PROJECT

By Rian on Monday, May 5th, 2014

“I didn’t set out to try and make a topical record about the internet and technology. It felt really taboo and weird and I felt embarrassed about it, but it was also this thing that was so obviously prevalent in my life and in everyone else’s life that I can’t just pretend that it doesn’t exist and write a love song about driving in a car or something.”

The Creators Project sat down with Erika M. Anderson and Leif Shackelford of EMA to delve into the writing and recording of The Future’s Void. Read more here and watch the revealing video piece below:

‘THE FUTURE’S VOID’ IS OUT NOW

By Rian on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

The time is now. Facebook bought Oculus Rift  for $2 billion two weeks ago.  Erika wrote “Satellites” pre-NSA/Snowden. This record is about the time we are living in right now. ‘The Future’s Void’ is officially out today and not a moment too soon.

Erika posted the lyrics to the record on her blog as well as made a statement. See below:

Like the best of rock lyrics, my intention was that many of these words and lines can be interpreted in different ways.  This includes puns or phrases that take on double meanings as they are repeated.  Similar to “The Future’s Void”…  (solace/soulless, earn/urn, my Lucifer/might loose some fur, etc)

A few of these songs I pored over and edited heavily, but most of them were written through improvisation and quite often the take where the lyrics are still being written is the one that ended up on the track.  I like the urgency of that “first take” vibe, and I like the quality of something that is being created in the moment.  I feel like there is a simplicity and a truth to it, and that often gets taken away if you spend too much time consciously editing.

Pop in your local record store, choice of digital outlet OR order ‘The Future’s Void’ directly from us on CD, Cassette and LP (limited edition lavender vinyl), and there’s a shirt bundle, too.
