Maria Minerva, Will Happiness Find Me?
“I hate the idea of ‘gigs,’” Maria Minerva told eMusic earlier this year. “It’s boring! When I go out, I just want somebody to DJ from about 10 to 6.” Maybe that’s why Minerva’s second proper LP unfolds like a break-of-dawn set from one of her crate-digging 100% Silk compatriots. Caught in a K-hole where disco balls spin in time to handclaps, rubberized bass lines and glitter-dusted beats, it’s woozy and weightless — dance music meant for actual moon walking.
