Additional Info

"Considering her biography, it's surprising that no one saw it coming. Maria Juur, or the artist known as Maria Minerva, was born in the Estonian capital city of Tallinn a few years before the country achieved independence from the USSR. The daughter of an Estonian music critic, she gravitated to the more theoretical side of the arts, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Art History from Tallinn University. Like many a member of the post-communist generation, Maria eventually grew restless in her hometown. A year ago, she moved to London to pursue a Master's in Aural & Visual Cultures at the city’s prestigious Goldsmiths college.

Maria did not begin making music until fairly recently, but her distinctive and zeitgeist-embracing lo-fi disco-pop quickly piqued the interest of the blogosphere when MP3s like "Disko Bliss" and "California Scheming" started circulating in early 2011. On the heels of a 12" on 100% Silk and her Tallinn At Dawn cassette on Not Not Fun, Maria recently dropped her first proper LP, Cabaret Cixous. Two more Maria Minerva releases are also on the way: a second EP on 100% Silk called Sacred and Profane Love, and a collaborative effort with Amanda Brown's LA Vampires. Last week, I spoke to Maria on the phone about Cabaret Cixous and the theoretical underpinnings of her music."
