Me Chinese ‘Shaving’ Cassette is the Tits

This post started off as a track review. I was planning to speak on one of Me Chinese‘s latest song’s, either “We’re The Mansons” or “Nothing Happens”. But, after multiple listens, I couldn’t make up my mind on which song to feature. They’re both fucking great. Then, I saw that the band just put out a tape through Orlando’s own Godless America Records. And here we are. Enjoy.

Prick Scott doesn’t like MRYJNE.

Me Chinese have had a busy couple of months: performing numerous Orlando shows, releasing “The Single”, being labeled racists, and most recently, representing O-town at NYC’s CMJ. In a little more than a year, the band has established themselves as one of Orlando’s best young bands, all without releasing a proper EP. Some may dismiss Me Chinese’s popularity as only corresponding with the buzz around the band’s name – but, let me ask you this – what other Orlando act has been featured on one of The Huffington Post’s playlists? I’m not entirely sure what that means, but I think it’s pretty impressive.

Now I will admit that a little publicity doesn’t help, but what really makes Me Chinese one of the best up-in-coming band’s is their incredibly vibrant brand of psych rock. If you’ve been keeping up, you’ll know that Me Chinese have only put out four songs, but each one has its own distinct colors. All of which I love.

“We’re The Mansons” has a gnarly doo-wop feel that reminds me of some of Iggy Pop’s early solo work. The tag-team of guitar and organ on “Nothing Happens” is sticky sweet, a theme that Matt Kamm and Ben Wright – Kyle Harms takes organ duty on aforementioned “Nothing Happens” – weave throughout their songs with spirited freshness.

Me Chinese just wanna have fun. They’re a band built around shared love for the Orlando music landscape, and are quickly developing their own acre among other like-minded artists. The future is bright. So let’s drink.
