EMA | False Flag
Say what you will about EMA’s musical style (which I happened to love), but you have to respect her honesty. She goes straight punk on this Sex Pistols/Hole-sounding single called “False Flag”, which takes a number of people to task: Those that benefit off the misery of 9-11, the phoniness of political exploitation, and even her own generation for being gutless: “It’s a 24/7 exhibitionist hell / And I hate people who look good and dress well … / Now everything’s fucked and the future was stolen / And my generation just rolled over / Nothing to say but a lump in our throats.” It’s a wonderful and meaningful anarchy. Her latest record is called “The Future’s Void“. Follow EMA at twitter and facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
