The Mae Shi Add New Member, Release New Album, Tour For The First Time In Two Years, Then Trick Me Into Thinking They Are Playing At My House…

So, I got in touch with The Mae Shi after I wrote an article about them looking for people to help them book their summer tour. Didn't work out with, unfortunately (though, the show must go on), but they did finally get a $100-per-show tour booked, and they've even added a new member (John Gray, a jack of all musical trades) and are releasing a new album at the shows! New new new new new!

The album is called HLLLYH. You can pick it up on cassette (yes, cassette) while they are on tour, or you can wait for the Moshi Moshi digital download release this November. They've also got a limited-edition CD with them, hlllyh, which has a mish-mosh of beats and samples taken from the new album.

HLLLYH was written and recorded over the past two years and has become increasingly known through word-of-mouth. Like Shellac, The Mae Shi have decided not to send out copies to the press for review.
