Micachu & the Shapes … Never … Rough Trade Records 2012
Weird, bouncy, grating music. Short songs that have a lot of non traditional instrumentation: strumming a guitar without playing notes, crashing, beeping. The female singer, Micachu, has an echo-effect on her mic, singing calmly through a storm of percussion.
This is exactly how I’d expect David Lynch’s music to sound. Super crazy, super clown. It’s definitely got a Twin Peaks vibe to it too- some songs sound really Julee Cruise inspired. He collaborates with Karen O. on track 1 and the album gets progressivley weirder after that. If you’re a fan of David Lynch’s voice and electronic noises, check it out.
