In the Maybe World
Young God

Lisa Germano is the undisputed queen of sadcore. For more than 20 years, she's made an extensive and impressive career with her clandestine vision of troubled emotions, lurid storytelling, and isolation. As a much sought-after session player, she's been contracted from a veritable who's who of rock 'n' roll giants. But it's always been her solo releases that have allowed Germano's talents as a singer/multi-instrumentalist to come forth and shine. Her music is sad, beautiful, and intimate‹odes to abuse, neglect, addiction, and feline companions have all factored into Germano's hushed and  yearning world. Hurtful sentiments and reflections rule the landscape of her subconscious. In the Maybe World is a continuation of her immersion into the ecstasy of failure and the hopes and dreams of someone whose voice is lost amid a sea of undesirables. As with previous releases, In the Maybe World carefully outlines despair as a sense of empowerment suppressed by apathy, a bittersweet compulsion that demands many returns.
