The Future's Void

Limited copies of both CD and LP come with a City Slang Sampler CD featuring a few exclusive tracks. 'The Future's Void' is the follow-up to Ema's acclaimed 2011 LP, 'Past Life Martyred Saints'. The album is a massive leap forward in both sound and songwriting however it still has the industrial-noises and glorious fuzz of her solo debut and previous work with Gowns. The album was heavily influenced by Nine Inch Nails demos, the heavier side of early K Records, and William Gibson's Neuromance.
Vinyl - Limited copies on Lilac coloured vinyl plus Download.
Tape - Limited to 100 copies in the UK.
