“The Drift” is off Big Business’ 2009 full-length Mind the Drift, released on Hydra Head.
“(Yes) The Border Crossed Us”
“(Yes) The Border Crossed Us,” the second single from Italian avant-punk gang TSIGOTI’s ESP-Disk Debut, Private Poverty to the Power People, is an exercise in political debauchery and a forward vocal delivery of self-restraint from Thollem Mcdonas that comes a-swingin’ right out of the gate. Behind this lies the wirey, convulsive guitars of mastermind Matteo Bennici that become the driving force of this quasi-punk anthem, while the rhythm section spends time deconstructing things down into No-Wave-esque breakdowns and pummeling, fluid drumming.

Mi Ami’s second full-length, Steal Your Face, is released April 6 via Thrill Jockey. “Cut Men” isn’t on there, but as the beautiful publicist says, “the track hints at Mi Ami’s current direction and offers up a taste of what’s to come.”
