Published May 20, 2014Montreal's Maica Mia are offering fans a unique experience to watch them record a live album at Breakglass Studios on June 14. That live session album will be the follow-up to Des Era, the group's first as a trio after adding Mauro Pezzente of Godspeed You! Black Emperor on bass. The album features a song entitled "Wish," which the original duo performed for us in an Exclaim! TV session.
The urgency of the performance is accentuated by the purposefully shaky, VHS-quality of the filming, which hypnotizes over the course of its seven-minutes.
A North By Northeast performance will find the group invading Toronto venue the Garrison, presumably in full band form. Additional June performances are scheduled for June 4 at Montreal's La Vitrola and during Calgary's Sled Island fest.
For now, watch the streamlined version of the band perform live for Exclaim! TV in the player below.
