Track of the Day: Mi Ami
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.
