I had the great pleasure of taking @melissamccrack to see the record breaking Hilma af Klint exhibit at @guggenheim. Melissa is an incredible artist. She is a painter who has synesthesia and experiences music in color. This experience is then rendered as a work of visual art. Her creation is breathtaking and as soon as you understand it as a visual expression of a musical experience, it will come to life in an even more profound way. She is also the artist who created our album cover art for Multisensory Aesthetic Experience. In the early 1900’s @kandinskywassily was busy “creating” the field of abstract art by painting his own experiences of music. He is also someone who has been referenced as synesthetic and a whole new form of visual art came out of that unique way of creating a visual expression of a “non-object” - in this case painting a song. While the entire story of western modern art flows out of that narrative, it is alas an incomplete story. In fact, @hilmaafklintofficial was creating abstraction several years earlier.. Her story is now finally being told to the world and the impact has been truly extraordinary. In addition to breaking attendance records at the Guggenheim, it is fundamentally shifting the cultural narrative and restoring credit to where it was due. The exhibition closes imminently and I strongly encourage anyone who can to go and see it. - Jacob

Happy birthday to The Everglow! • On this day fourteen years ago our second album, The Everglow was released. We are so grateful to all of our family, friends, and fans who have supported us for years and years. The Everglow was a celebration and illustration of that support, as we told our story and instantly had it become your story. It still blows our minds how this album has affected you! • Would you be so kind today as to tell a story you have associated with The Everglow? We are eternally grateful for you. Thank you for allowing the story of The Everglow to continue to grow with your own stories! • We love you! -mae • • • #mae #multisensoryaestheticexperience #theeverglow #longlivemae #weresofaraway #someoneelsesarms #suspension #thisisthecountdown #painless #theocean #breakdown #mistakesweknewweweremaking #coverme #readyandwaitingtofall #anything #thesunandthemoon

And then we’ll talk about forgiveness. It’s the way that we can love each other. Let it die so that death can bring life again. Hold it high what is left is a light again. #mae #multisensoryaestheticexperience #letitdie #forgiveness #alternative #indierock #longlivemae #sugarcubes #symmetrylabs

Around this time 10 years ago we were wrapping up production on (m)orning. 2 different versions of the EP were released beginning with the limited edition tour only release with scented discs. This was also the start of Cell Records. • “Night/Day” was less than a month away from digital release and “The Fisherman Song (We All Need Love)” was being wrapped up in the studio around this time a decade ago. • Who came out to see us on the (m)orning tour in the spring of 2009? Do you remember the lineup? Our good friend Kenny Vasoli and his band Person L played right before us every night and our soon to be buds Barcelona opened the tour every night. What a show! • Please share your favorite (m)orning and (m)orning tour experience with us! We would love to hear from you! • What (m)orning songs would you like to hear on our next tour? The whole album perhaps?! • • • #longlivemae #multisensoryaestheticexperience #amelodythememory #morning #mae #music #alternative #indierock #melodicrock #melody #memory #thehousethatfirebuilt #boomerang #nightday #thefishermansong #weallneedlove #2009 #2009tour

Happy first day of spring! • On this day 10 years ago we released the song, “A Melody, The Memory” independently as part of our 2009 song per month campaign. • Anyone who saw us on tour last fall knows that we played this song every night. • This song brings nostalgia and romance together over a song and a moment. Please share with us your favorite memory from a favorite song of yours. The power and ability that music has to bring us back to a place of remembrance is so amazing! We celebrated that 10 years ago and we celebrate it again today. Happy birthday “A.M.T.M!” • Is that your song I hear playing? Because I’m feeling it too Does it take all direction and control over you? When you sing do you slip away back to that place in your mind? Let our love be the one thing you won’t leave behind Rewind and play It’s time to go backwards again I’m moved by the way all the notes in time make the melody Hold me and sway into the moment we share Where we can stay so attached to the memory How I long just to hold you And see you let go as we dance I know you’re reminiscing through our romance Can you hear the piano and the pulse of the drums? Does the tune and the groove bring you back to our love? Oh come and find it honey Rewind and play It’s time to go backwards again I’m moved by the way all the notes in time make the melody Night into day can we move onward from here? Where we can stay on and on attached to the memory Oh I know you can feel it Let me take you there Rewind and play It’s time to go backwards again I’m moved by the way all the notes in time make a sweet melody Night into day we have been captured again A new time and place to make a million new memories • • • #longlivemae #multisensoryaestheticexperience #amelodythememory #morning #mae #music #alternative #indierock #melodicrock #melody #memory

“Everyone of us is an aperture through which the entire cosmos looks out.” Alan Watts Each one of us is a life that is part of the larger system of Life. Certain moments in our lives allow us a glimpse into how we are both at the same time. Have you ever experienced the boundary dissolve between yourself and the larger system of Life? If so, when and how? Mine usually happen in nature... - Jacob #multisensoryaestheticexperience

Mae babies... young Dave (19) and Jacob (21) sitting on the pier pondering the future.. Next to Dave is another Dave, the one and only Dave Pogge who not only played bass with MAE several times throughout the years but also wrote the current band bio (which is our favorite one ever written). There are so many incredible humans who have been a part of bringing the MAE vision to life throughout the years and we honor all of them. We have always imagined MAE to be more of an experiment in art and community than a band for its own sake. Thank you for being a part of that community. We are continuously humbled to have such a genuine, wonderful group of humans to call our friends, fans and collaborators. 📸 - @josedob3

Question for you - when in your life has pain or loss turned into unexpected beauty? In late 2010, after two years of a musical campaign that connected so many of us together in acts of service during (m)(a)(e), we had our van, trailer, and all of our equipment stolen out of a hotel parking lot in Philadelphia. It felt like such an unusual twist in the plot that, after such generosity and good effort, we would lose everything in an instant. In the months that followed we discovered that our theft was just part of a larger effort of inside jobs targeting bands at that hotel. A detective on the case informed us that the Russian mafia was behind them all. In the aftermath, we felt an overwhelming spirit of generosity return to us through all of you. In particular, I lost my beautiful @ccdrumco drums with their abalone inlays. So when I had the fortune to create another custom kit, I reached out to my friend and mentor Makoto Fujimura Art to ask if I could wrap my drums in a print of one of his paintings. He said “no, but I will create an original work of art on your drums instead.” This may have been the most generous gift I’ve ever received... Over the next year, Mako worked to paint a masterpiece over all four of the new drums. He uses the traditional Japanese Nihonga technique with ground minerals and gold leaf. But he pioneered their use in his own style of abstract expressionism. I am forever grateful and inspired every night when I look down and see the lights reveal new layers of the beauty. It helps me remember that the darkest despair can actually increase our capacity to appreciate the brightest joy when we keep our hearts open. - Jacob

2019 begins the 10 year anniversary of the release of songs off of (m)orning, (a)fternoon, and (e)vening. • Our 2009 song per month campaign brought out the best in us as we took back total ownership of our creativity, started Cell Records, and partnered with many of you to impact the lives of those in need. • The band changed a lot in the 18 months leading up to the release of “The House That Fire Built” on New Years Day 2009. From Tooth & Nail to Capitol Records to free agency, we parted ways with our dear friends, Rob and Mark, yet we knew Mae was far from over. We were on a course to find ourselves and redefine success for our band. • Over the coming weeks we will share stories and imagery from one of the most defining years of our band’s history. • Do you have a favorite song, lyric, or memory associated with (m)(a)(e)? We would be honored to have you share yours with us! • We love you and we are grateful for you! -Mae
