Maestro Maya | Contributed Photo by Dreamy Soundz Records
By Juan R Govea
Josh Cinquemani, Jonahs Downer and Andres Serrano emerged from the echoes of 3 different regions of Texas forming psych group Maestro Maya. Pulling from various genres while paying respect to inspirations pushing the group to express their spirits through improvised musical talents formed a bond transcending through time and space.
The debut EP out of Dreamy Soundz Records is a journey through the subconscious; rich with soundscape dimensions beyond the comprehension of mind.
Side A expresses altered earthly tones, grounding the listener’s experience to another world. Layers of ambience and drone-like tones enter the listener’s alien like communion carrying the way through “Gates of Dawn.”
Track two, “Dreamtime Merchant,” breaks through familiar consciousness coinciding with a dream like hidden message from a mysterious source leading to Side B’s tribal like beat pulling the human psyche to a metaphysical “Eternal Altar” reverencing an unearthly realm revealing the new release’s hidden message of “Time Traveler’s Mantra.”
The EP is a must have for spaced-out psych fans and lovers of original Texas psychedelic promising to take listeners to a deeper ambiance of kraut, psych, and space gazed vibes expressed in perfect unison.
Maestro Maya’s EP is available on cassette, CD, and digital formats.
