it has always been great fun to arrive at musical groups from
Quebec, Canada. Maicamia is an anglophone group led by female voice.
Do you remember such artists as Hrsta, Thalia Zedek? Do you remember
such a group as Low? Do you remember such a group as Dream City Film
Club? Do you know what will happen if to merge all these elements
with each other? The result is a band called Maicamia. This is an
irresistible blend of angst, angst, and once again angst. Angst is
over there to get materialised and to cover a listener with a heavy
and suffocating shell. With the very purpose to seal all the shit
surrounding a human being. It consists of rough, slowed-down drumming
as if being transmitted from a wicked rehearsal room and there are up
shrill soul-stabbing guitars and enchanting chants of a female voice (by the way, the opening track is titled ironically Lambourghini Diablo).
All of that is reflected on
the cover either. It is
possible that depression as a state of mind could be truly beautiful
in art and it is a case. Holy shit. I have nothing to add to it.
