And if you won't love me someone will

This EMA album, "Past Life Martyred Saints," is ranking quite highly in my "best of 2011" list. I'm not sure it's going to beat that Shannon and the Clams disk, but it's really, really strong. I mean, just listen to that song. Seven minutes of passionate, focused emotion, simply and eloquently presented. It's like taking the simplicity and naked intimacy of a standard singer-songwriter and turning it into something artful and a tad more challenging. This is a beautiful and wonderful album, and I recommend it highly.

Plus, one time our band opened for her at the Detroit Bar and she said I had great stage presence and I got super blushy. Note to other six-foot tall Viking-women rockstars: feel free to say nice things about me whenever.
