The best 100% Silk release of the year: a mini-album/EP housed in a gold-foil stamped LP jacket. "Producer and chanteuse (and fashion icon and social satirist and heartbreaker) Maria Minerva is the groove-gift that keeps on shimmy-givin.' Her forth effort this year -- after the wildly weird, how-low-fi-can-you-cry Tallinn At Dawn, the boy-you-turn-me upside down disco EP Noble Savage, AND the salty sweet gauze-ahh strip tease Cabaret Cixous -- comes just in time for Santa, baby. Sacred and Profane Love wraps it up with a bow: drugged-out drag choruses, saucy pans, lines of echo-coke, head-trippy candy flips, layered bangs, crooked hooks, top forty flirting, pop weaseling, sand dune sparkle, dream reels. With a wily wink Minerva serves allusions to the other gay nineties, reminding one of a Post-era Bjork or a 'Sampladelic' Lady Miss Kier or a 'Deeper and Deeper' Madonna. Sensual in every sense of the word. Maria Minerva just turned it up, so you better bring your M game."
