4. EMA - "Marked" (2011)
Erika Anderson seems more obviously wounded on record than Harvey ever has, but there's a vivid clarity to her songs that seems comfortable peering out from inside that cloud of exquisite anguish. Here, her love is drastic, curdled, but she still wants it to be permanent. She cries out for lasting proof of every bruise her heart ever took on.
