WOAH!! you might know of this already, i didn't: Ezra has moved on and is concentrating on his new shizzle with GOWNS (www.myspace.com/gowns) thus leaving a gay-ping wide hole in the band. The Mae Shi are awesome and I stayed at Brad and Coery's house following a super hot show with them and Wires On Fire last year! (go me)
It's at times like this when i wish i had musical ability beyond hitting things with wood. I guess it'd help if you live in CA, but i dont think they specified this, so...?
Interestingly they cite Lady Sovereign as one of their influences?!? right on.
