Tour News: Micachu & The Shapes

Fronting the British trio Micachu & The Shapes is the 22 year old, experimental singer-songwriter Micachu – the moniker of Mica Levi. The trained musician has already been commissioned to write a piece for London Philharmonic Orchestra, rapped with Wiley and Mecury Prize winner, Speech Debelle and her debut album, Jewellery, is perhaps one of the most freshest sounding and critically-acclaimed albums this year. If it’s new sounds you are after, Micachu & The Shapes is the band for you.

Just a note: the music of Micachu & The Shapes is abstract. It is heavily syncopated and dissonant, even awkward. The array of sounds generated from numerous homemade instruments is catchy, so catchy it’ll keep the kids with short attention spans at bay. Their unique sound has already captured the experimental pop queen Bjork and next year, it will be our turn to experience the flurry of chaotic sounds from Micachu & The Shapes who will be here as part of the Days Like This festival.

4 Jan The John Curtin Hotel, Melbourne

    friday is my favourite day, because at work we have a thing called “elevenses”, where a staff member has to bring in delicious treats, like tiramisu or chocolate fudge slice. sometimes people bring in exotic treats like gulab jamun.

    also, because it’s the start of the weekend which means i can get drunk.

    Sunday is the best day. Who does anything on a Sunday?? It’s the epitome of relaxation.

    I like Christmas Eve. Up until that point it’s all a rush. Preparing way too much. Last minute gifts. Then, as the evening sets in, you finally sit back with everything done. Hit the christmas day wine a bit early. Check out some ridiculous christmas lights and watch a bad festive movie. It’s relaxing as hell and the Christmas anticipation is still there. The next day never quite lives up to it.

    When I was kid it was definitely my birthday…free stuff + attention = highlight of the year.

    Now I just feel old.

    So now it’s just a day with lovely weather and company and not much on the agenda.

    My favourite day is Thursday because it’s spaghetti bolognaise day.

    The longest day is the happiest day. Summer solstice not only sounds poetic but it lets you optimise your frolicking-in-the-sun time, with a t-shirt weather night to continue the party.

    October 3rd is a great day. Tommy Lee of Motley Crue was born, Gwen Stefani of No Doubt was born…and I was born as well. In different decades for each, mind. But still, a great day!
