If you've been listening, you may have already heard the new music we call Mind Maintenance. As the name implies, it's meant to affect you between the ears - but this doesn't mean you can't derive full-body benefits as well! The natural buzz and percussive qualities of Joshua Abrams' guimbri and Chad Taylor's mbira sit consonantly against the other, their shared resonance forming a sonorous whole. Immediate and meditative - so simple, so physically in the room!
In 2021, there's a worldwide need for people every to get in the rooms filled with such soothing, enervating physical vibrations, which is just one of the reasons Mind Maintenance will soon be taking it to the stage, joining Big Thief on select Midwest and East Coast dates in September. During this run, the duo will also belatedly celebrate their record release (S/T; dropped in June!) with a hometown show in the sympathetic environs of Constellation next month.
When the live sounds of Mind Maintenance radiate around you, massaging the core and stimulating your cerebral cortex, you will feel yourself breathing freely in the presence of something it has known forever! Experience this in real time this Fall, and maintain your mind - with Mind Maintenance.
