Boomkat Product Review:
Micachu and the Shapes deliver a baker's dozen of pocket-sized pop rockets on their 3rd album for Rough Trade. Originating in a surreptitiously recorded jam session at their East London studio, 'Good Bad Happy Sad' finds and occupies a very canny space betwixt fidelities, animating their raw, skeletal ideas - hatched sub-consciously and mid-jam - with subtle post-production and a strange, inseparable patina of field recordings, industrial electronics and additional instrumentation. The music's effect is at once upfront and direct, but sensitively gilded with detail that draws the ear beyond their effortless licks and winsome melodies. Like us, you're probably already familiar with the crack'd charms of single tracks such as 'Sea Air', the zippy clip of 'Sad' and the naval-gazing shuffle of 'Oh Baby', so we'll crack on to the other highlights, coming quick and good in the dreamy garage-pop monologue of 'Thinking It', or with salty electric likembe tones in the tone poem, 'Waiting', whilst 'Unity' forges a unique style of para-dimensional black metal, and the tender strums of 'Peach' emerge from glitching loops into a lo-fi form of exotica expression. In case you couldn't tell, we think it's a real bewt.
