The Mae Shi

Saturday, October 22, at Mary Jane's Fat Cat, 4216 Washington Avenue, 713-869-5263.

On the recent Heartbeeps EP, screech-singer Ezra Buchla sounds a bit like the Arab on Radar guy approximating Craig "Hold Steady" Finn's phrasing. Meanwhile, the music is closer to U.S. Maple, with some pretty convincing Trout Mask Beefheartisms sprinkled here 'n' there. Ten songs in 15 minutes places the disc well within the good ol' Teenage Jesus limit (always a blessing in no-wave territory). Anyone who knows what the hell I'm talking about will probably dig this stuff. Oh, yeah, bonus points for name-checking Andy Kaufman's abominable robot movie.
