"Mi Ami is committed to their own particular joyful noise, to the intersection of vicious high-energy playing with ebullient communal experience. In this climate, when pretty much every band has some dub records at home and a myriad of musical influences have been rendered mundane, Mi Ami defines itself by turning inward. Where before, melodies had been suggested, here they are fully developed. Where structure had previously meandered, here each song uses a minimum of means to 'get to there,' allowing the playing to fly free. And, where lyrics had been left unprinted, here they are laid out completely, an integral part of the music. Technically, there are four components to Mi Ami's music: Drums, Bass, Guitar and Vocals. And yet, essentially there is only one: the unified sound, more than the sum of its parts, each individual component coming from and returning to the singular whole. Anyone interested in understanding what Mi Ami is about would do well to start with this album. More concise than Watersports , more confident than their other pre-Thrill Jockey releases and better sounding than anything else they have done, Steal Your Face marks their arrival as a fully-formed, organically mature band."
