Micachu – Oh Baby

Is there such a thing as “happy avant-garde”? If not, can we coin it on behalf of Mica Levi aka Micachu aka Micachu and The Shapes? Known for crafting her own instruments and making music with found objects, Levi is back with her experimental pop outfit. They’ve just dropped an intoxicating track called ‘Oh Baby’, which sounds like they were jamming in a hollow container, banging on the walls and singing their hearts out. And what do you know, Rough Trade described the new album, Good Sad Happy Bad, as the result of a super inspired, hours-long jam of the trio in an East London studio. It’s out on 11 September.
