Track of the Day: Mi Ami

Posted By on Tue, Jan 26, 2010 at 8:13 AM

At the end of last year, Thrill Jockey released--and then promptly sold out of--a new Mi Ami 12" called "Cut Men." The record featured the original track on the A side, and its flip side is a dub version of the same song.

The label's now offering the "Cut Men" single for free, as a taste of what the trio of Daniel Martin-McCormick, Damon

Palermo, and Jacob Long has been up to lately. (The group recorded a full-length album, Steal Your Face, out in April.) The song gives off a frantic, frenetic energy: vocals manic and rushed, percussion importing rhythms from outside American borders, mechanical birds giving off robotic chirps over rapid synth runs. "Cut Men" is the sound of Mi Ami agitated, excited, and ambient, building up to a crescendo of yelps and guitars.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
