Maria Minerva - Bless
Not Not Fun:
Tallinn’s melted-pop-cultural treasure Ms. Maria Minerva returns to the SILK sheets with one of her most brazen and neo-millenial song cycles. Life in the Big Apple seems to have upturned any self-set stylistic restrictions lingering from her continental grad student days. Bless pogos from new-wave electro-witchcraft to ambient R&B to sampladelic island funk to bootlegged Tom Tom Club karaoke, tied together with perplexing voiceover snippets and classically earnest Maria echo croon. A remix by So-Cal secret weapon Lady Blacktronica (look her up) seals the deal. Only 500 made, most gone already.
