A change of form, a change of ideas. For over three years Damon Palermo, Daniel Martin-McCormick and Jacob Long have been making, under the name Mi Ami, impressive rock with no-wave angles and accents that combined their hardcore punk legacy with dub, free jazz, disco and African rhythms. Recently, Long decided to leave the band, and Palermo and Martin-McCormick took the opportunity to take the project towards more electronic fields. Their new EP, “Dolphins”, will be out at the end of this winter on Thrill Jockey. According to the Chicago label’s press release, the four tracks on it sound like “a melting, dystopian refraction of left-field new age, lush soundscapes and Italo daydreams. Simultaneously ingesting and rejecting pop pleasure, wide-eyed optimism and modern despair, it is equal parts improvisatory winging it and forceful, fully-realized vision.” If you’re curious, you know what to do: look for the record starting 15th March.
