10" vinyl 4 track EP, limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies. "Y delineates the point where angelic harmony and dissonance dovetail in a psycho-acoustic soundscape of orchestral beauty, analog textures, and voices of disquieting sensuality beckoning the listener into a personal and affecting secret world. MAYa was conceived in a caravan, born in England, and named after an Incredible String Band song. Shortly after she traveled with her parents and their friends in a bus to Asia, she returned aged two with kohl eyes and bracelets on her little wrists and ankles to the South of England where she was raised by her grandparents and where from a very young age her turntable became her closest friend. Growing up she was obsessed by music and pop culture and began developing her aesthetic working at Recommended Distribution and These Records where she was first immersed in the British experimental music produced by, among others, Touch Records, Robert Wyatt, and This Heat. After many world travels and musical experiments, she has made her debut offering called Y on Discalcula records with her friend and collaborator, Joseph Budenholzer from Backworld. Residing in New York City, MAYa is currently writing and recording her next record."
