"Geneva Jacuzzi is a pop artist working in the strange paradise of angels—Los Angeles. A mother of invention, she is exalted as an early pioneer of the modern lo-fi bedroom pop terrain, and is a notable figure in the underground scenes in Hollywood and Los Angeles, with her influence spreading worldwide in the pop, noise, and independent art communities. Lamaze is Geneva’s 2010 debut—a full-length pressing of analog 4-track and 8-track recordings that document the development of her musical style: from her first appearance in 2004 up to 2009. The recordings from this period are largely electronic pop songs that are typical minimalist constructions with dance floor tempos that trot around at about 100 BPM. Geneva’s sound, fashion, and performance style varies broadly, but they supplement each other’s functions in the scope of the performance. Her core inheritance is rooted in stage traditions including classical Greek, Weimar-era Berlin, Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, French mime comedy, Klaus Nomi, Nina Haagen, and Liquid Sky. Lamaze is essentially a collection of demos, which is an atypical debut. But it is among the first lo-fi pop recordings that became the lexicon of the new music frontier, the 'hypnagogic' jukebox— chillwave, bedroom pop, witch house, vaporwave, and more. The sound of the future, today." - Mexican Summer
