Maria Usbeck announces her debut solo LP and shares lead single, "Moai Y Yo"

Maria Usbeck (former frontwoman of Selebrities) today announces her debut solo LP and shares lead single, "Moai Y Yo."

"Maria Usbeck’s Beautiful, Spanish-Language Debut" THE FADER

The album "Amparo", to be released May 27 via Labrador in Europe and Cascine in the US, is a collection of songs written and recorded across the span of three years in Ecuador, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Barcelona, Lisbon, Easter Island, Costa Rica, Florida, L.A. and her home in Brooklyn.

Though the songs were composed electronically, Amparo called for an acoustic treatment, so Usbeck spent a winter in the studio recording the arrangements live with producer Caroline Polachek of Chairlift who has also produced Beyoncé and engineer Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson. Fleshed out in full sonic color on the marimba, xylophone, quena flute, piano, and harp, the album stretched into something hi-fi and expressive, meditative but not meandering.




We'd love to hear from you. Get in touch! /Labrador
