Hehe. That Micachu lass is a right 'un ain't she. Not content with thoroughly energising the London DIY scene single handedly, she seems to have taken it upon herself (on half the tracks accompanied by her mates, the Shapes) to make a blistering pop headfuck of an album, 'Jewellery'. Opening with the bouncing, pummelling 'Vulture' which is as scratchy, abrasive & delightful a start as you like, 'Lips' takes this trashy full frontal attitude further with huge bursts of fuck-off white sludge burying the incessantly catchy rhythyms. The songs come at you like addictive junkshop psycho-pop darts, sounding like some deranged kids are busking their hearts out after hearing some of Beck's more unhinged moments and lots of pirate radio grime & embryonic "wonky". I can't believe how simple but astoundingly layered these songs are. Such a pure home-made feel, the vocals are really homely & conversational too, so many mad ideas, so many twisted & giddy tunes with myriad hooks & spellbinding effects. I'm totally unsurprised this 3 piece are on the cover of every magazine, making delightful, original & carefree pop as vibrant & raucous as this. I like the way Matthew Herbert seems to have taken the base elements, sprinkled them with his boffin's bag of tricks without remotely compromising the precious essence of Mica & (her chums!) vision. A kaleidoscopic wonder, you'll keep going back to this album for a long time, I assure you.
