About this event


Hot off the heels off MAITA's 2020 debut, Best Wishes, named one of the “50 Albums that Define Oregon” (Portland Monthly), MAITA’s sophomore LP, I Just Want To Be Wild For You, digs into the crippling oxymoron of modernity: the constant bombardment of communication paired with utter disconnection.

Released February 18th via venerable indie label Kill Rock Stars, I Just Want To Be Wild For You grasps passionately for a world that too often seems at a gauzy distance.

Of the new record, Bob Boilen (NPR music) says "She just has this sensitivity to her sound that I really really love."

KEXP calls MAITA, "a master storyteller who can turn intimate moments into quippy, catchy indie-rock songs.

Splitting time between her mom’s Japanese-speaking home and her father’s English-speaking home, songwriter Maria Maita-Keppeler found an expressive avenue out of her childhood shyness through music. The Portland-based songwriter tapped into that grand yet intimate reverence for MAITA’s sophomore album, from the churning twinkle of “Pastel Concrete” to the riotous give-and-take of “Honey, Have I Lost It All?”. In those moments of disconnect, of confusion, of isolation, I Just Want To Be Wild For You thunders ahead, forging unexpected connections along the way.

Allison Lorenzen's minimalist approach to acutely felt noise-pop and aching slowcore balances a gossamer lightness in her voice with lush synthesizers and heavy guitar riffs. Featuring Midwife, Lorenzen’s first album, Tender, was released by Whited Sepulchre Records in 2021 to praise from NPR, Spill Magazine, Austin Town Hall and more. Tender was named Best New Album by Westword Magazine in 2022.
