Micachu & The Shapes albums Micachu & the Shapes burst onto the scene in 2009 with Jewellery, which fashioned forward-thinking pop from junk-shop sounds, homemade instruments and, above all, a keen sense of mischief. That mischievous streak is as strong as ever on Never, an album whose point-blank title hints at how uncompromising its contents are. Mica Levi and company deliver songs that feel more like contraptions built on Rube Goldberg-esque arrangements where each part is wackier than the next, and sound like they were cobbled together in a workshop rather than recorded in a studio. The band self-produced the album, opting for a dense, gnarled sound that seems rawer than Jewellery even if it's not actually lo-fi, a feeling emphasized by the focus on texture and rhythm instead of melody; "Golden Phone," one of their debut's singles, might as well be teen pop by comparison. Even Never's poppiest moments sound like ...

Micachu & The Shapes music CDs JEWELLERY proves to be an impressive debut from 21-year-old musical wunderkind Mica Levi, aka Micachu. Although the frantic soundscapes and thickly distorted guitar push the album into abstract experimental territory, Levi, with the aid of her backing band the Shapes, manages to make this artfully orchestrated mess catchy. Adding to the delightful chaos are Micachu's garbled, childlike vocals which futher call attention to Micachu & the Shapes as an artistic force to be reckoned with. Personnel: Micah Levy (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar). Recording information: Human Jerky Studios (2008).

Micachu & The Shapes CD discography Though Chopped & Screwed is Micachu & the Shapes' second album, it's hard to call it a true follow-up to Jewellery's brilliant avant pop. This collaboration with the London Sinfonietta brings the group's experimental undercurrent -- as well as other aspects of Mica Levi's musical background -- to the fore, taking these ...

Micachu & The Shapes Biography

Micachu & The Shapes albums With an almost absurdist-punk method of songwriting, yet with a keen ear for new wave pop melody, Mica "Micachu" Levi designs songs which defy explanation; she's tossed out "nosebleed experimental anti-folk monkey-brain" as a stand-in definition, but contends she's ultimately a pop artist. Whatever it's called, she and her Shapes, two friends who support her on various, often hand-crafted instruments, built a quick fanbase and a critical buzz leading up to 2009 debut JEWELLERY.
