Apologies for the break in posts, been sorting lots of stuff out behind the scenes. Am now including alternative links for MP3's (hosted on yousendit) to include the blog in search results on Elbo.ws and Hypem, something overlooked previously. Got some fabulous content lined up, stay on board!
Micachu writes complicated but loveable songs about objects and objections. There's a fabulous depth in her tracks, performed/recorded with her backing group The Shapes, that gives her soon-to-arrive debut album Jigsaw tonnes of different facets over multiple listens. Rather super stuff! She lies in a strange middle ground between novelty and seriousness, her songs somehow skipping and stumbling along in a mesh of jarring chords and strange rhythm. Micachu studies composition in London which shines through in this deceptive complexity hidden in her songs. I've posted a fabulous remix of Metronomy's breakthrough single, Radio Ladio, as well as a stream of Micachu's debut single, Golden Phone.
