MARIA MINERVA [100% Silk + Not Not Fun//New York]
Born in the bedroom out of boredom, desperation and loneliness, Maria Minerva is Maria Juur from Tallinn, Estonia. She makes murky disco full of reverb, delay and enigmatically ethereal vocals. Maria magnifies the idea of bedroom-ballads-turn-dirty-dance to the umpteenth power with her pleasure/pain vocals and synth-phonies. Self-assured and whip smart, sensual lyrics with an intellectual bent.
Pure electronic blissssssss from the Hamilton native.
BONAVENTURE brings the warped slow jams and VHS disco for an opening set, and BINOCULARS and ALL YOUR TWINS (Adam Bentley/Jordan Mitchell of The Rest) bring in their vinyl collection and spin it. An eccentric handbag of quirky cuts, hits from yesteryear, disco, and dance music.
