Mxmtoon – Masquerade
Available on backorder
Vinyl LP pressing. The debut album from 18-year-old singer/songwriter Mxmtoon, the masquerade delivers what she calls “rhyming diary entries”: an off-the-cuff account of her most private thoughts and feelings, usually dashed off very late at night, straight from her brightly lit brain. In her deliberate refusal to hide behind metaphor, the Oakland-based artist otherwise known as Maia achieves a quiet bravery, an unrestrained honesty that gives voice to those who often go unheard.
