White-hot post-punk/heavy rhythmic assault action from this Bay Area trio, featuring Daniel McCormick and Jacob Long of Black Eyes. It’s a really strong debut of uptight, polyrhythmic frenzy and a girthy underpinning of dub. McCormick’s vocals are shrieky – really shrieky, so if you never got used to Black Eyes or Arto Lindsay, they might put you off. But the musicianship is so tight and locked down that the vocals fall to the noise side of Mi Ami’s dichotomization of chaos against serious, exacting bass/drum action.
