In August, Maria Taylor released her fourth solo disc, Overlook. This new disc is rawer, both in sound and emotion, than Taylor’s work with Azure Ray and Now It’s Overhead, and Taylor produced this disc herself after coming off a year-long writing dry spell. The music on Taylor's latest disc is a compelling assortment of songs that range from wispy dream-pop to Michelle Shocked-style ragtime Americana to alt-country/folk to pulsing, jagged, alt-rock.
Note: Ignore the YouTube song title - this is a live performance of "Happenstance"
Maria Taylor's show at Mercury Lounge is a late show with doors opening at 9:30PM. Taylor is sharing the bill with The Grenadines (10PM) and Dead Fingers (9:30PM) and tickets are $12 in advance and $14 DOS.
