Editors’ Notes

Micachu (Mica Levi) & the Shapes are making some brilliantly strange and beautiful noise; dare we call it “cutting edge?” Imagine if M.I.A. had grown up listening to Harry Partch or John Cage; if the Slits had come of age in the new millennium when everything to do with art and music is but a computer keystroke away; if the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 and Xiu Xiu hooked up at a London grime party and procreated ...  Jewellery, produced by acclaimed British electronic musician Matthew Herbert, is a 35-minute rhythmic mash of primitive punk squonk, folk dissonance, and naïve jazz scribbling. Playing “modified” guitars and unorthodox homemade instruments (including a vacuum cleaner), Micachu  — a formally trained, 21-year old musician who recently wrote a piece for the London Philharmonic Orchestra — is joined by Raisa Khan on keyboards and Marc Pell on drums. If you’re reluctant to try a little artiness with your pop, go for the single first; “Golden Phone” has a joyful, slinky, dance beat, and sweetly soothing vocals. You almost don’t notice the sound of breaking glass halfway through.

Customer Reviews

New World of Pop

A bit off-putting on the first listen, very rhythm focused and with ingenious arrangements, Micachu and her band make music that is never boring, often engaging.

greatest new discovery!!

I first read about Micachu and the shapes in an article (in the Village Voice). I was intrigued, so I watched the video 'Lips'. Talk about a new, inventive sound!! Micachu's voice is different, but oh so pleasing to listen to- and the style is so new/experimental.. you can't NOT listen.. it's creativity at it's finest!! My favorite songs are: Lips, Golden Phone, Turn Me Well, Just In Case, Hardcore-- Well, to be honest.. I love them all =) Trust me, this is that "unknown" band.. that everyone will be listening to in a matter of months.

Great New Music

Micachu is a young androgenous UK artist with more wit and originality than most American bands combined. She and The Shapes have crafted a record filled with enough great samples, loops, hip-hop beats, and grimy guitar to populate many full-lengths; however, the precocious young Brits prefer to keep their tracks short and distinctly different from one another. The album falls short only in that ideas aren't explored more fully. Perhaps by their second album Micachu and the Shapes will mature a bit and take more time with their songs. "Golden Phone" is a MUST have. "Eat Your Heart," "Just in Case," and Calculator" are very highly recommended. Buy the whole album, boredom isn't an option.

Biography

Born: 1987 in Surrey, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Micachu is the stage name of Mica Levi, a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist born in Surrey, England, and raised in the Bow area of East London. Levi's music, which she calls experimental pop, is a boundary-blurring mix of hip-hop-tinged beats, found sound samples, singalong melodies, rock guitar, and the odd vacuum cleaner or two. She also makes her own instruments, including the Chu, an adapted guitar that she named after herself. Levi began playing and composing music at age four, but despite...
