Micachu & the Shapes


For now, at least, 21-year-old Surrey girl Mica Levi has decided to forgo her conservatory roots in favor of skewed pop on homemade instruments. While she might be an ideal candidate for the Wordless Music series someday (hint, hint), it was an interesting move to rope in techno producer Matthew Herbert to help provide the right element of disorientation for Jewellery, her debut. The restless, schizo nature of her tunes might be off-putting to some but, in the right mood, they can also be pretty damn bracing. With the Grates, Leona Naess, and Brasstronaut.
