From what I've heard of The Mae Shi, they seem to be all about short bursts of energy and melody, supersonic combinations of weird electronics, guitar noise and strangled vocals not unlike Les Savy Fav and Brainiac. They have a new split CD with Rapider Than Horsepower that will be out in January on Strictly Amateur Films called Do Not Ignore The Potential. "Remarkably Dirty Animals" is one of their contributions to the album, which they describe as "paradoxically, the most challenging and accessible record we've made to date". This also seems like a good opportunity to mention The Mae Shi's remix of Beck's "Que Onda Guero" that's been floating around the interweb, which just may be better than anything that appears on the actual Guerolito remix album.
