Watch mxmtoon Play “almost home” From a Park in Brooklyn for “Neighborhoods”

The songwriter performs the single from her dawn EP in Fort Greene Park.

Yesterday marked one month since mxmtoon released dusk, her second EP of the year and a yang to the yin of April’s dawn EP. Boasting production from tUnE-yArDs’ Merrill Garbus, a guest verse from Carly Rae Jepsen, and a song entitled “bon iver,” the release sees Maia shifting into collaboration mode while leaning into the influence of artists who’ve inspired her mxmtoon project.

Jumping back a lifetime ago to the spring of 2020, though, Maia gave us a solo uke performance of her dawn EP track “almost home” from atop a rock in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park on an appropriately overcast day. You can watch her performance—as well as a kid playing soccer behind her—below.
