God gave us fingers--Ma says, "Put your gloves on."
God gave us raindrops--Ma says, "Don't get wet."
Ma says be careful, and don't get too near to
Those strange lovely dogs that God gave us to pet.

God gave us fingers--Ma says, "Go wash 'em."
But God gave us coal bins and nice dirty bodies.
And I ain't too smart, but there's one thing for certain--
Either Ma's wrong or else God is.” - Shel Silverstein


Mayako XO is the new moniker of ongoing solo project by Los Angeles based musician and artist, Sara Gernsbacher, FKA Littlerag, Dentdog and Baby, among others.

This tape is a dark and comforting anthem, what it is to be a body knocking up against the sharp man made edges we live in, singing praise to creature comforts and the searching of solid ground in a world where everything feels like it’s on fire. The recounting of Shel Silverstein’s “Ma and God”, the repetition in guitar licks, the songs propel and cut through the air, an honest search in uneasiness. There is no posturing in this special package and there are no masks.

Mayako XO’s s/t is Gernsbacher’s first solo release.

Recorded and produced in the spring of 2018 by Lou Rogai. Engineered, mixed and mastered by Don Sternecker at Mix-O-Lydian Recording Studio in DWG, PA.
