Ital’s Daniel Martin-McCormick: “I Didn’t Want To Do Some Jamie Lidell Shit”

Daniel Martin-McCormick got his start screaming and playing guitar in the wild and wonderful Black Eyes, which released two records on Dischord in 2003 and 2004. Today, he's best known as Ital, the name for his electronic dance-music project, but he’s also half of Mi Ami, which went from a three-piece rock band to a more [...]

Washington Insider: In a Pitchfork feature, former Black Eyes member Daniel Martin-McCormick (aka Ital) says, "The only time I've ever like felt like an insider was in Washington, D.C. I was born there, and I didn't even realize I was an insider until I left."

Daniel Martin-McCormick Has Not Run Out of Jams

Altered Zones points to this cool video from LA Vampires Goes Ital—a project from frequent-collaborators-of-spooky-buzz-bands LA Vampires and Ital, which is one of D.C. expat Daniel Martin-McCormick's many outlets. Martin-McCormick, a former Black Eyes member, gets ink 'round these parts mostly for his work with Mi Ami—lately of fucked up nu-disco fame—and Sex Worker, which is his project [...]

Mi Ami’s “Dolphins”

Get ready to get weird. Mi Ami, the trio-turned-duo featuring former D.C. resident Daniel Martin-McCormick (ex-Black Eyes), just released a new music video to promote their forthcoming 12-inch, "Dolphins." This bizarre synthesized odyssey is the album's title track; it's the longest of the record's four songs, clocking in at more than nine minutes. With the [...]

Endorsed: Daniel Martin-McCormick’s Sex Worker

Former Black Eyes dude/current Mi Ami wailer Daniel Martin-McCormick rolled through D.C. Saturday for a set at Shaw DIY spot The Cherch.

Catching Up With No Kill No Beep Beep, Day 9: Black Eyes

On Oct. 24, 2000, Dischord Records released No Kill No Beep Beep, the classic debut by Q and Not U. The cover is an arresting, whimsical snapshot of the punk-rock community that spawned the record—the band asked its friends and peers, most of them under 25 at the time, to pose for a portrait that [...]

Reviewed: Mi Ami’s Steal Your Face

On first listen, Mi Ami's sophomore album, Steal Your Face (Thrill Jockey), seems to begin where last year's Watersports left off—quite literally. "Harmonics (Genius Of Love)" practically kicks off midstream, with guitarist and vocalist Daniel Martin-McCormick's frantic yelps hitting a histrionic high pitch at the song's start. If Watersports had been a double album, the C-side [...]
