Folick plays psycho grunge ballads and existential crisis rock–equal parts soft and hard. Her EP Strange Darling premiered on Stereogum and was recently reviewed by Jon Pareles in the New York Times, saying her “gift is capturing the uncertainty, temptation and impulsiveness of those brief but fraught junctures.” Her band was included in Bob Boilen’s top 10 discoveries of CMJ 2015 and, Boilen also included her in his 2015 review of shows, calling her live performance “transcendent”. Noisey urged readers to “Allow a little magic into your life in the form of LA-based folk-pop songstress Miya Folick,” and Pigeons and Planes compared her to Fiona Apple, Alanis Morrisette, and PJ Harvey. She lives in Downtown LA with her books and her disco ball.

During this period Brecht's influence on Weiss's plays became more evident. He also became obsessed with Dante 's Divine Comedy the influence of which is present in all his works from the mid-1960s until his death. In 1965, Weiss wrote the documentary play The Investigation ( Die Ermittlung ) on the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trials . Like Marat/Sade it attracted wide international attention and became the focus of heated debates about the 'right' way of representing Auschwitz and about who gets to decide what is acceptable and what is not.  This was followed by two experimental plays about the struggle for self-determination in the 'Third World': Gesang vom lusitanischen Popanz ( Song of the Lusitanian Bogey [a better translation would be Canto of the Lusitanian Bogey ] 1967) about Angola, and Viet Nam Diskurs ( Viet Nam Discourse , 1968). The next two plays once again focused on intellectuals and writers in times of upheaval: Trotzki im Exil ( Trotsky in Exile , 1970)  and Hölderlin (1971). Between 1971 and 1981 Weiss worked on his opus magnum: his three part 1000 page novel on the European resistance against Nazi Germany, The Aesthetics of Resistance .
