new vinyl edition of this amazing & instantly out of print album, originally released in NZ as a tiny 100 copy edition in 2012. while maxine's earlier LACE album unfolds as a more externalized & psychedelic experience, here everything focuses inwards with an utterly beautiful, lulling, tidal tranquility. overflowing with warmth & humble magic, like watching dust dance in a beam of sunlight through an open window. a kind of intimate microcosmic observation of the everyday, stretching the tiniest joys & subtlest quirks of life into something truly poetic and timeless. the songwriting is deep & revelatory, yet totally raw & unforced. fully in the "now" but also completely part of the infinite, like it's been pulled directly from the vague spaces between time & place themselves… stillness in motion… a sparse 4-track home-fi recording, with a gauzy analog mist ever present & the sounds of the environment gently creeping in. sublimely wonderful stuff here, with plenty of that unique new zealand magic. direct, pure & unforgettable, in the most lovely way… packaged in a totally hand assembled fold-out art paper cover with screen printed text & pasted artwork, nicely matching the LACE covers. edition of 300 copies.
released march 2016.
