MAS YSA – Shame
MAS YSA is something of a musical paradox. He sings like a timid child saying his prayers. He sings like warrior shouting at his army.
Shame progresses from the quiet and unassuming to the loud and riotous: when it climaxes, there is nowhere to hide.
Apparently pronounced “mass EE-sah”, or Thomas Arsenault if you’re after the easy option, has just dropped his EP, Worth – download here – and if you’re in NY head to the launch party he’s playing with Pictureplane at Glasslands on Feb 10.
