Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The new album from former 4AD artist Lisa Germano. A gifted lyricist & singer, but also a talented multi-instrumentalist (violin / piano / guitar). Her sound has been compared to the quieter moments from The Eels and Cat Power.

Amazon.com

In the three years since 2003's Lullaby for Liquid Pig, singer-songwriter Lisa Germano found both a comfortable new home for her recording career (Swans leader Michael Gira's Young God label) and the most challenging topic to engage her muse yet: death in all its various incarnations, be they physical, spiritual or intellectual. Whether celebrating her father's successful open heart operation ("Too Much Space"), grieving the passing of a beloved pet cat that's been the focus of several earlier songs ("Golden Cities") or lamenting the musical vacuum left by the tragic death of Jeff Buckley a decade past ("Except For the Ghosts"), Germano's tales flow as if from a dream state, cast in a suitably ethereal sonic landscape that's graced here by the presence of Smiths/The The/Morrisey guitarist Johnny Marr. Given the subject matter, it's no surprise to find her wit notably subdued, yielding an album whose spirit can seem as delicate as its heart is bleak.-- Jerry McCulley

This is a long but nevertheless abbreviated excerpt of a review I wrote in my blog - You can read the entire review here: [...]

As Lisa Germano albums go, In The Maybe World is about what I'd expect from her at this point, if not everything I could hope for - which is to say, it's beautiful, and moving, and well-written and imaginatively recorded, though I might have liked it to be a bit longer, and stranger, with more animal sound effects (there's birdies on this one but no pussy cats). It's very intimate and low-key in the manner of the previous and afore-mentioned Liquid Pig, though not quite as weird and disorienting (in passages) as that one was. Her songwriting is dependably melancholy and enchanting in the fashion she's well loved for, with achingly sad and cadenced melodies and prosaically understated lyrics. The arrangements are endearingly forlorn, with piano as the lead instrument accompanied by other odd keyboard parts and scraping violin or the occasional guitar, and occasional unexpected gusts of low-fi ambience and effects. Her vocal delivery is by now familiar to her fans: close and breathy (think: 'closet mix'), hurt and heartfelt, broken and vulnerable, with unaffected awkwardness and sincerity (and less of the self-deprecating irony than was evident mostly on her earlier albums). Like Liquid Pig, this album is concise and under-embellished, with twelve songs in under thirty-five minutes. A couple of the tracks are just about perfect, the sort of ballads that she's known and loved for: "Too Much Space" and "Except For The Ghosts" both are built around achingly beautiful melodies that breathe such an air of hopeful warmth and sorrowful regret that John Lennon or Baby Dee might have written them. And most of the other songs are nearly as evocative and well-crafted.

This is Lisa Germano's latest offering, and it seems as if she's looked back to her previous work, and took all the best bits and poured it into this great little record. Little, in the sense that it is rather short (just over 30 minutes).

On this album you will hear songs reminding you of the best bits of Geek the Girl, Love Circus, Liquid Pig and even Moon Palace; lyrically, Lisa tackles some heavy and powerful emotions, like death, self-loathing, relationships gone bad, etc. The production is more 'raw' than on her 4AD albums, but that helps the overall effect, I think. An album not to be missed!

Lisa Germano has recorded some incredible albums over the years...but "In The Maybe World" is undoubtedly her best. With lyrics that are light years ahead of their time and melodies that will stick with you for the rest of your life...this is probably one of the most genuinely personal albums ever recorded. Can't recommend this one highly enough. Totally mind blowing from start to finish...

Somehow I have always thought that Lisa's music is a head above even the most respected female singer-songwriters... There is not much point in comparing artists, of course, so I will simply say that her work continues to sound outstandingly profound, evocative and timeless. This album is definitely further proof of that. I count several of the new songs to be among her best work - silent, melodic, harrowing, soothing, ironic, bitter, all that in her typical delivery and inventive musical sparseness. The standouts to me so far are: The Day, Too Much Space, In the Maybe World, Red Thread, A Seed, After Monday... amazing, wonderful winter music as the cd cover suggests.
