EMA’s unhinged and beautiful LP “Past Life Martyred Saints” is one of my favorite records of the year, and thanks to La Blogothèque, we have three new ways to enjoy her music. For the uninitiated, the French music video site records artists playing in outdoor locales, sometimes on the city sidewalk, or in a park. Listen to three songs played by EMA below. She plays with string accompaniment, even banging away on “Butterfly Knife”, amid the gazes of perplexed construction workers. Follow her at her wordpress site here. — David D. Robbins Jr.
