"Wha? Piggity Pink?" - Nina Ryser

With the EP Piggity Pink, Jazz Adam, Nina Ryser (Palberta) and Ricardo Balmaseda continue Old Maybe's descent into whimsically absurd experimental rock by delivering five sizable cuts that touch on, as Adam says, themes of "pigs, pink, purple, Scientology, self-hate, forced femininity, lethargy, and the sub / dom dynamics that appear in relationships." Beautifully recorded under the hand of Paco Cathcart (The Cradle, Big Neck Police) at Bottom Bell House in January 2017, Piggity Pink picks up where 2016's Oblio EP left off-- elevating Jazz Adam's compositions and comic deliveries with fresh, jagged no-wave inspired arrangements.

With more than one year as a band under their belts, and writing more collaboratively than ever, Old Maybe deliver a refined pallette, maximizing the impact of piercing guitar licks with found sounds and the utilization of more overdubs. Longer song lengths allow ideas to fully develop, letting the opposing grooves present themselves in glorious contradiction. Tracks like "Metal June" and "Ugly Love Me", see Jazz Adam deliver way-out lyrics with an energetic flow and cadence supported by a rock-solid rhythm section. Overall the aesthetic is gritty, in your face and yet still shines in it's levity and comedy, never taking itself seriously but presenting a product that was undoubtedly crafted with pride.

Track Name: Metal June
What do I do?
How can I change you?
I try, I try, I try, and try, and try, and try, I try
It’s all in my head
That’s what you said
How do I-

Look in my iris
How can you deny this?

How can you look me in the eyes
and do the things you said you won’t do?
Track Name: Clear
Two things in front of me
Didn’t hear anything
So I walked around

Everything was how they said
Two things carried
I wasn’t really feeling like doing anything
But I’m down for anything
