I guess like many of us, Maya birds have been productive in the last year and a half. Eventually they were released Valdez, You don’t know the existence of the long lost album. Recording back to 2014, it picks up exactly where the 201’s are tough Celebration Leaves. In the wake of the band’s long break, I used this opportunity to travel to Philadelphia to catch their record release show in Sunflower Philly, a beautiful outdoor location in North Philadelphia, Sunflower Philly. The band rips through new records and some tunes from Jam Celebration-The style of a song collage I titled “Sunflower” and “Philly” here where the band cycled through a few reefs that I swear are simultaneously familiar and slippery. A few fuses don’t stop these birds because they shut things down with Harmonica Dan with the legendary Harmonica Dan on The Stooges “TV Eye”.
There is no future date for Birds of Maya but don’t forget to catch up Valdez Encourage these guys to do some new recordings from Drag City and maybe.
I recorded it with the front of the MBHO. Once people got the cradle I had to move a little and the sounds could be a bit uneven in the area. Yet it’s a nice capture of a really special show. Enjoy!
