Count Backwards

Ninja Tune
Proving herself as a force to be reckoned with, Emika consolidates the groundwork done by the superb debut 'Drop the Other'. Coming off like a classic Portishead track (not as lame a comparison as you might think), 'Count Backwards' is a heart-wrenching slice of doom beat mongery, underpinned by some harsh electronics and of course Emika's wistful vocal adding the necessary accompaniment. Add two contrasting versions from Berliner Marcel Dettmann and Kryptic Minds, and you have a complete package.
