Ever since its release last May, EMA’s debut Past Life Martyred Saints has been a sleeper indie hit (a Best New Music designation from Pitchfork undoubtedly helped the buzz). We’ve already seen her earn the hype as a performer in her thrashing cover of Nirvana’s “Endless, Nameless.” Now we can celebrate her as a songwriter with our first cover of Erika M. Anderson.

WATERS – the latest project from former Port O’Brien frontman Van Pierszalowski – adds a distorted squall to the understated “California.” If you know the original, it ably bridges familiar and fresh, and if you don’t, it stands as a great listen on its own. Download WATERS’ “California” below. (via MTVHive)
