Sounding off | The Sunday Times 13.11.11 09:55 Sunday Times, December 2011 (UK) Sounding off Sounding off | The Sunday Times 13.11.11 09:55 Erika M Anderson is a 23-year-old South Dakotan whose songs — and Anderson also tries to establish lyrical links between herself and chart pop. “They use lines like “I’ll especially lyrics — demand attention die for you’ all the time,” she says. “That’s kind of the same, isn’t it?” Not really. It’s not quite the same as “I don’t mind dying”, or “These drugs are making me so sad/I can’t stop taking them”, or “When you showed up in that spot/I almost threw up on the spot”. Mark Edwards Published: 13 November 2011 These lyrics are, surely, honest representations of some fairly miserable states of mind. She nods: they are honest, but the very act of writing the songs helps. “I write songs to access the unconscious I magine, if you will, an alt-rock supergroup that comprises Patti Smith, Michael Stipe, Frank Black problem-solving part of my brain,” she says. “And afterwards, I feel much better. Oh, I didn’t know I and Lou Reed. Awesome, huh? Sadly, it’s not likely to happen (although with Stipe a free agent these felt that way, I didn’t know that was bothering me — but it often really does go away if I write about it. days, and Reed wise to the benefits of unlikely collaborations, following Lulu, his team-up with Metallica, who knows?), but if that combination of styles and talents appeals, you could do worse “Also, there is a level of self-awareness when you sing lines like that. The first time it comes storming than explore Past Life Martyred Saints, the debut album from Erika M Anderson, who trades under out of your unconscious, but, as you listen back to it in the studio, you find more of a cartoon element in it — ‘Oh, this is extreme.’ And sometimes it feels almost like a sense of duty, to say things her initials, EMA. that aren’t being said, to make things that aren’t being made.” Here you will discover the intensity of Smith, the vocal dexterity of Stipe, the off-kilter riffs of Black The other time in our conversation when Anderson refers to her sense of duty is when she recalls and Reed’s mastery of guitar tones on the edge of chaos, all combined in a 23-year-old singer who being a teenager in South Dakota, and thinking: “Isn’t any other girl going to form a punk band? Okay then, it’s up to me.” pretty much emerged from nowhere when the album was released earlier this year. (She was previously in a band called Gowns, but unless you’re a Los Angeles-based lover of drone-folk, you We should all be grateful for Anderson’s sense of duty. Without it, a quite remarkable album would probably never caught them.) never have been made — because nobody else was going to make it. ! EMA starts her British tour on November 23 at Heaven, WC2 This is one of those rare — too rare — albums where every moment matters, every lyric fascinates, every sound thrills. Even more remarkably, this extraordinary record draws its inspiration from the life of Anderson’s great-grandmother and from the differences between these two generations. It’s not your typical rock subject matter, but she takes this unlikely starting point and finds in it universal themes as she explores the conflicts we all face in making our own way in the world, separate from previous generations yet still inextricably linked to them. Anderson encapsulates both the distance and the closeness of her life and her great-grandmother’s in the four lines that close the album’s opening track, The Grey Ship, a seven-minute epic that has already referenced Anderson’s even more distant ancestors, with its mention of Viking ghost ships. “Great-grandmother lived on the prairie/Nothing and nothing and nothing and nothing/I’ve got the same feeling inside of me/Nothing and nothing and nothing and nothing.” It’s hard to imagine any rock lyricist who wouldn’t be proud of that verse, and the subtlety of the connection counterpoints the more immediately shocking lyrics that made Anderson one of the most blogged-about artists around when the album emerged. You can hear a typically unsettling example on her new single, Marked (out on November 21 on Souterrain Transmissions), which contains the repeated line: “I wish that every time he touched me left a mark.” Elsewhere on the album, we hearSounding off | The to “20 kisses with a butterfly knife” and the suggestion that “I don’t mind dying”. references Sunday Times 13.11.11 09:55 So when, on California, she opens by exclaiming “F*** California, you made me boring!”, it’s not entirely convincing. There’s nothing remotely boring about Past Life Martyred Saints.http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/culture/music/pop_and_rock/article817655.ece Page 1 of 3 Anderson explains to me how her great-grandparents ended up in South Dakota. “They came from Scandinavia as homesteaders,” she says. “The deal was the government basically saying, ‘We’ll give you free land if you’ll go and live in this shitty spot.’ They lived in sod huts in the middle of extreme http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/culture/music/pop_and_rock/article817655.ece Page 3 of 3 weather. And, gradually, they built a home and a life.” Anderson was born in Minnesota, but the family soon returned to South Dakota. “It’s one of those places that’s a good place to raise kids... technically,” she says. “But not really.” South Dakota is 50% bigger than England, but has a population well below 1m. “It’s all farms, ranches, empty,” Anderson says. “I think people there are confused. You’re a speck in the middle of nowhere — what’s going on? You don’t feel there’s any purpose. It all seems so arbitrary and a little bit futile. When I said I was going to move to LA, they’d look at me like I’d said I was going to Mars. Mind you, if I’d said New York, then they would have known I was insane — you’re going to end up dead in a gutter. With California... well, at least there’s a beach there.” You imagine that Anderson couldn’t wait to leave. In fact, she had conflicting emotions about her move to Los Angeles at the age of 18. “A lot of the album explores this conflict,” she says. “They moved here, they built houses and homes out of nothing, and now here I am moving somewhere else. Should I do that? Is that a good thing? Am I building on their achievements, on everything they’ve done? Or am I abandoning and rejecting them? Am I betraying everything these people have worked for through several generations to go to LA... and be an artist?” Anderson can barely utter the words at the end of that sentence. She says the idea of someone from South Dakota aspiring to be an artist is “a sin, almost”, and she was as hesitant about her artistic aims as about her move. “It took me a long time to say — even to myself, let alone out loud — that I really wanted to do this.” While she worked up the courage to commit to songwriting, Anderson carried on a parallel life, earning a living as a substitute teacher. “I think that’s most people’s idea of hell,” she says. “You’re working with an audience that’s quite likely to be openly hostile, but I really enjoyed it. You’re given an idea of what you’re supposed to teach in each lesson — try to do this, try to cover that — but it’s mostly improvised. I thought it was fun.” It sounds not unlike her writing process, which favours stream-of-consciousness creation over a broadly brush-stroked musical backing. “I don’t know why,” she says. “I mean, I like choruses.” Anderson refers to the way she writes music down as a “hobo score” because it resembles the hieroglyphics American vagrants would carve into fenceposts to indicate whether a householder would meet a request for food with generosity or a shotgun. “One musician looked at something I’d drawn and said, ‘Hmm, this looks like when Charlie Brown has stink lines.’ I said, ‘Okay, then, play stink lines.’ The thing is, I see sounds as shapes, and it’s hard to describe that to other people — ‘Oh, I want a synth that sounds like one of those rocks with lots of holes in it that people use to scrub their feet.’ So, anyway, that’s probably why the record is mostly me.” Anderson is obsessive over sound, an attention to detail highlighted by the moment in The Grey Ship when the lo-fi opening transforms into a glossy studio production. It’s been compared to the moment in The Wizard of Oz when the black-and-white film turns into colour. “I love sound,” she says, before reaching for an unexpected comparison. “You know, I’ve been listening to the most recent Britney Spears album on headphones. I love it, because every single moment is thought out, every single sound is very specific. I get thrilled listening to that. Friends say, ‘This is nothing at all like what you do.’ Oh, but it is, though.”http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/culture/music/pop_and_rock/article817655.ece Page 2 of 3 11
