"Sonic Reducer"

I wonder if Lady Uranium visualizes scenes as she writes, composes and sings. The reason I wonder? Her new EP, Vulpes Vulpes, is definitely visible listening. Opening track “Wild Night” evokes images of a forest engulfed in moonlight. “(Your Mouth Holds the) HUM (of a Million Bees)” conjures a landscape of lonely highways and headlights illuminating a drifting doe as her spirit is carried away by the elements. Lady U kicks it up a notch on “Blue Flowers,” a folky, whimsical number she'll probably play for her grandchildren. “Voice 7,” an unsettling electronic ditty that could soundtrack an intense bout between holographic gladiators, brings a sense of urgency. And the last track, a live recording of “Dustland II,” is Uranium's warrior call, a complete release of inhibition surrounded by a tribal ritual gone astray. If this varied EP is an indicator of anything, it's that this artist inhabits an unusual world. Consider yourself lucky to have a window in. (Mark Lopez) - Alibi Weekly

"12 New Mexico Bands You Should Listen To Now"

This one-woman show is something else, and on her debut EP Vulpes Vulpes Mauro Woody brings an open-book candidness to her lilting electronic avant-pop. Woody keeps the music light and spacious, occasionally doubling her vocals for optimal dream-sequence effect. The question is: Is it music to take drugs to, or music to make you feel like you’re already on drugs? (Mark Lore) - Paste Magazine

"Pyragraph LIVE from the Albuquerque Press Club: Mauro Woody"

We talk with electronic music wizardess Mauro Woody of Lady Uranium, Chicharra, The Glass Menageries, and Merma and Roberta, to name just a few of her musical projects. We chat with Mauro about the vibrant scene for women-led experimental music in Albuquerque and beyond, including stories from the Gatas Y Vatas and Titwrench festivals that she just participated in this fall.

Still working on that hot first release.



Multi-instrumentalist Mauro Woody is one of Albuquerque's strongest musicians. Between Milch de la Máquina, Chicharra, Melanthius, Merma and Roberta, and a host of other projects like Gatas y Vatas (an all female/female identified solo performance festival), she regularly collaborates with some of New Mexico's best creatives (incl. artists, poets, musicians, etc.) Her project Lady Uranium doesn't fit neatly into any genre - at times focusing on electronic sounds and harmonics, at times tending towards desert folk, and at times bending towards the nearly indescribable whispers and haunts of a house inhabited only by ghosts.
