Today, EMA is uncaging her Marked digital single and its B-side, "Angelo," is streaming right here. (There will be a limited run of 7" vinyl available on November 21). It's a cut that finds the Northern Californian songstress marching even further into the napalmed spaces that comprised this year's Past Life Martyred Saints, as she howls through hills of distortion and hum. She also brought company this time out: Oakland rapper MzGorjis delivers a rumbling, pre-climax guest verse featuring a bit of brilliant philosophy: "Life is a gift."
