mxmtoon, I Feel Like Chet Review
Keeping things unpretentious and focusing on the music, is Oakland based Maia Xiao-En Moredock-Ting, also known as Mxmtoon. Offering a solid collection of tunes, Mxmtoon has a folk rock, meets indie songstress vibe. Her lyrics are sincere, and her voice is warm, with an overtone of honesty. Mxmtoon is releasing her latest folksy bedroom pop creation titled, “I Feel Like Chet.” She brings her ukulele playing and folk-enriched vocal style to life with her witty lyrics and creative melodies.Positives: Mxmtoon brings an intimate and sincere mood to her stripped-down approach of strumming ukulele paired with vocals and vocal harmonies. Bottom Line: Mxmtoon is a songstress that presents her music in an organic and ‘less is more’ approach that comes off as relatable and enjoyable. “I Feel Like Chet” has a Mxmtoon accompanied only by an acoustic ukulele. The song starts with just a simple strum on the downbeat, but then develops into a catchy strumming pattern that propels the song nicely. Mxmtoon has a rich voice that is presented in an unaffected way that fits the setting perfectly. Vocal harmonies enter as does a simple pitched bell sounds that bring variety and emphasis to various melody lines. During the chorus, Mxmtoon invokes a very nice counterpoint section between the vocals and the vocal harmonies. A sterling performance in a stripped down, yet lovely approach to highlight the beauty and clarity of Mxmtoon’s voice. A welcomed listen. That’s the short of it!
