Magical, sci-fi-loving artist and elementary school teacher from Oakland making extremely lush and weird electronic pop. Her 'Mazy Fly' album is one of the most original and refreshing things out so far this year.

Yeah I really like this! Probably has the album cover of the year too

glad you started this thread, i was about to.

some really awesome and evil-sounding synths on this record. 'real fun' is the highlight for me, i think

Comparison time!

Under The Sun is like Let's Eat Grandma but even better imo

After Life is like L'Rain and almost as good

I like this

I’m all for weird music from Oakland! Will definitely listen to the previous release soon. Highlights from this one for me are the aforeposted and the Hard to Please reprise. ‘Evil-sounding synths’ is otm.

Yes, good stuff indeed. Saw her live with Rituals of Mine the other month -- excellent combination.

Great album. The melodies are indelible, I already feel I've known most of the songs forever.

i think i played pantheon a thousand times in 17-18, it was a total favorite. i even pre-bought mazy and waited. then i went "meh" and never really gave it a chance.

i listened again to pantheon today, swooned as usual, and thought, i really need to listen listen to mazy fly.

fuck i was so dumb not to listen, it's totally infused with, and energized by, the same spirit that pantheon had. it's like, "i've got this great voice, and big weird spaces to fill up." how did i miss getting to listen to now? like, i'm almost wondering if i actually listened to it now?!

I only heard this for the first time yesterday and it's phenomenal. Her voice reminds of me of Nicolette a bit, that kind of out-of-context jazz singer feel. Love how gothy it is and then suddenly she'll make a turn into bright sunshine 60s pop.

Just in time to sling it a vote in the 2019 poll as well.
