Compared to the average LWE podcast contributor, New York resident Daniel Martin-McCormick may appear as a bit of an outsider. He’s had an extensive career as a member of Black Eyes and Mi Ami; perhaps best pigeonholed as noise-rock acts, both nevertheless have shown an awareness of electronics and avant-garde arrangements. In the last year, Mi Ami, now down to two members, has become increasingly electronic. This shift has been coupled with a wave of solo activity from Martin-McCormick — two releases of smudgy, isolationist dub-pop as Sex Worker, and three of uncompromising, visceral dance music as Ital. Ital is informed by twentieth century avant-garde composition as much as Omar-S or Hieroglyphic Being, and LWE’s 97th exclusive podcast makes this eclectic approach explicitly clear.
