Top of 2008 #5: The Mae Shi-HLLLYH

The Mae Shi has always made interesting music, but sometimes to the point of the unlistenable. HLLLYH is their most melodious album to date, and it’s full of those glitchy beats we all love. Also full of biblical references, HLLLYH is Mae Shi at their most focused.

The Mae Shi-Lamb and the Lion
