Mi Ami Steal Your Face
If the age-old adage is applicable here, Steal Your Face is the storm following the calm of Mi Ami's debut, Watersports. "Harmonics (Genius of Love)" opens the SF band's sophomore effort using all of their sonic elements at once: reverb-addled vocals, dubby basslines, distorted guitar work, and propulsive drumming. The energetic, noisy dance-punk trend continues throughout Steal Your Face, particularly well on the no-wave-inspired "Latin Lover" and "Secrets," so much that you may catch yourself thinking you've stumbled upon a new Black Eyes record. Mi Ami continues to explore its loose-groove, jam-band tendencies on the epic "Dreamers" and album closer "Slow," but in far more reserved quantities than Watersports, making for a much more exciting and immediately lovable listen.
