“Hey everyone look at the SWEET lineup!!!!!!!!”
Award-winning American singer–songwriter Kimya Dawson has seven solo albums to her name, as well as a number of releases with her other projects, including The Moldy Peaches, The Bundles, The Uncluded and Antsy Pants. Dawson has also collaborated with a long list of artists including The Mountain Goats, Aesop Rock, Ben Kweller and Regina Spektor. She is also widely known for her contributions to the Grammy Award-winning soundtrack for the film Juno (2007). Her songs are a blend of lo-fi pop and scrappy anti-folk, with Rolling Stone magazine describing her as ‘straddl[ing] the line between precious and profound’.
MMGZ music is a history lesson, a future lesson, and a comment on the present all at once. And really it is more than a lesson, its a soundscape to these different time dimensions, so that you are hearing and experiencing not only music, but you get the voices of the ancestors, the whispers of our descendants, and the field sounds of the future and past landscapes. She presents an immersive experience in her music that unfolds or unearths some of the hidden dimensions that are embedded in sounds.
