Premiere: Mike Maimone: isolation:001:the movie

While some of us spent quarantine binge watching Community, Mike Maimone spent it recording a new nine song collection called isolation:001. In addition, he also created a music video for each track. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere isolation:001:the movie.

Maimone said “each day in quarantine I could feel like a completely different person. One day I can’t get out of bed, the next I’m cleaning the whole house. One day I love humanity thanks to kindness and creativity on social media, and the following, I’m convinced we are doomed as a civilization. One day I feel like the best version of myself, and the next I can’t stand living in my own head.”

Each song on isolation:001 represents a different fragment of Maimone’s personality. One of his personalities is the devil, one wears a throwback Mark Price jersey, another is a penguin who just wants to fly, so on and so on. While the whole movie is done a bit tongue-in-cheek, the songs are real. From the uptempo banger “Dirty” to the downtrodden “turns out​.​.​.,” its a roller coaster of emotions, each one relatable to how some of us felt over the last year.
