Never by Micachu and the Shapes
Released: Jul 2012
Label: Rough Trade
"Don't tell me how to have fun," insists Mica Levi on her fearless U.K. art-pop trio's sophomore effort, her off-kilter voice channeling the slurry dreaminess of "Tomorrow Never Knows," every word augmented by jaunty, corroded horns. This is wild, dense, junkyard-anarchist stuff -- "Holiday" sounds like a deranged merry-go-round -- with a darker tone than their great 2009 debut, with anti-choruses of "There is nothing wrong with me" and lotsa bone-cracking imagery during the four-song closing sequence "Top Floor," "Fall," "Nothing" and "Nowhere." A thrilling, unnerving ride.
Rob Harvilla
