Your Daily Lick: Mi Ami

Watersports (Quarterstick Records)

Lead singer Daniel Martin-McCormich screams in "The Man in Your House" like Kurt Cobain in Nevermind's "Territorial Pissings." But Mi Ami isn't looking to revive grunge; its bent is more toward noise, with subtle, elusive undercurrents of melody and rhythm shaped by both bass and percussion that flow beneath a jagged, tense surface of high-pitch guitar and vocals.

At the Hemlock Tavern (1131 Polk St., San Francisco) on Feb. 27. 9:30 p.m., $7.
