MayMay's self-titled E.P. is a collection of 5 songs, written on a tattered lawn chair in the backyard.

Recorded during the fall and winter of 2008 in Portland, Oregon, MayMay's E.P. tells us a history through the sounds of fingerpicked nylon guitars, haunting vocal melodies and beautifully crafted string arrangements. With quietude and warmth, Laurel's compositions flow full of emotivity and a natural sense of restraint. The music of MayMay transports us to a world in which we can dive to the bottom of the sea, ignoring the pressure of the water above us.

“delicate in the process of being crushed, recorded in a single take with birds in the background, gliding in on a breeze and leaving soon on another” - The FADER

“minimal, twinkly affairs with lush but spacious arrangements and fragile, basic melodies that remind me a little of Tenniscoats or Heather Broderick” - Norman Records

“She has a pretty unique gift with her song structures, creating very melodic poetry on top of some acoustic ballads” - EARMILK

“engaging collection of gentle songs…shades of fellow Pacific northwesterner Laura Veirs” - For Folk's Sake

MayMayの初めての作品は、裏庭にある古びた椅子の上で書かれた5曲の歌のコレクションです。どこか憂いを帯びたLaurel Simmonsの歌声、Heather Woods Broderickによる爽やかなコーラスが伝える印象的なメロディー、美しく巧みに作られたストリングス、フィンガー・ピッキングで奏でられるナイロン・ギターの調べ。
まるで5月のそよ風のように優しく、そして暖かく奏でられる楽曲に、私たちは儚さの中にある小さな光を見ることでしょう。Tara Jane O'NeilやIda、Julie Doironらの系譜に並ぶようなタイムレスな魅力を持ったインディー・バンドの登場です。
