Chicago’s Mazes ready new LP, made a video (video & stream)
by Bill Pearis
When not making music with The 1900s, some of its members (Edward Anderson and Caroline Donovan) make music as Mazes. (They had the name before the Sebadoh-loving Irish band started using the moniker too and are sticking to their guns.) While similar in style, Mazes play it fast and loose with more of a ramshackle, anything goes approach. The band’s second album, Mazes Blazes, is due out next month on Parasol Records and we’ve got the premiere of “Peace Can Do No Wrong” from it in video form.
As all songs with “Peace” in the title must, this stomping cut features a chorus of voices (the Blue Ribbon Glee Club) and the video looks to be taken from the beer-fueled recording sessions. The song is also currently available as a “radioactive red” flexidisc which you can purchase here.
Looks like fun. Hopefully, we’ll get some Mazes tour action this fall but no word on that right now.
The video, an audio stream of the single and a stream of Mazes first album from 2009 are below…
