Editors’ Notes

The previous outing from experimental pop artist Micachu (a.k.a. Mica Levi) was a live collaboration with the London Sinfonietta called Chopped & Screwed. As mind-boggling as that record is, Never perhaps tops it as another stellar mark in the musical prodigy’s career. This record neatly continues her evolution as an avant-gardist who finds rhythm in the darnedest places and casually integrates musical ideas rooted in punk, classical, and jazz. She and her band serve up oddball tones and oscillations on homemade instruments, arrange songs as if they’re shaped to fit a Dali landscape, and sculpt visceral textures out of clanging metal, bizarrely tuned strings, and wooden objects, turning out surprisingly memorable melodies in the process. “Easy,” “Never," and “Waste” are strong enough individually, but their back-to-back chunky beats and neon-coated guitar and synth fuzz pull in listeners with surety. From the swaggering junkyard funk of “Slick” and the mechanical grind of “Heaven” to the watery keyboard vertigo on “Nothing” and the floorboard-carving, raw groove of “You Know,” Never is never boring.

Amazing

one of the best new bands out there hands down. Keep Writing Mica!

Never

Download Worthy Tracks: 5. OK, 9. You Know
Also, check out the videos made for each song. They are brilliant :s

I completely loved Jewellry, still in heavy rotation (Ship and Vulture in particular) and was a bit nervous of what a sophomore album would become, but I think Never is just as amazing as their first. And touring with Animal Collective! Monumental.

Do yourself a favor and buy this album, listen to it the whole way through. And if you don't dig it, listen to it again, cause you are missing something.

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...
