Mayako XO is the solo music project of Sara Gernsbacher based in Los Angeles. XO by Mayako XO is an exercise in singing to multiple selves, non-human, past and future, converging in one looping currant.

It is a structure of sparse layers, new age no wave of post punk femme, notes repeating.

Guitar phrases asking and answering each other over and over, each time though somehow distinct, with a voice sewn through and around the middle.

Recorded and Mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in 2018, minimal chant and knife-like guitar lines coalesce with prose and direct un-affected vocal delivery to keep you enthralled, on your toes.
