First Listen

Mi Ami "Cut Men"

The most recent release from San Francisco's Mi Ami, a 12" record containing the two songs "Cut Men" and "Out at Night," finds the band in a far more frantic state than it was on their debut full-length, Watersports. Through copious amounts of jangly guitar riffs, syncopated basslines matched with propulsive drumming, grating vocal yelps, and sparse electronics, "Cut Men" sounds as if Mi Ami are channeling the incendiary post-punk of their former entity, Black Eyes. It's a uniformly energetic piece of contemporary no-wave which is hopefully a foreshadowing of sounds to come on their upcoming second album, Steal Your Face.
