Micachu And The Shapes Reluctantly Get Choreographed

Jun 1st, 2009 // 3 Comments

Mica Levi’s musical alter ego Micachu has produced one of my favorite albums of the year, Jewellery, and “Golden Phone” exemplifies why: On the surface, it’s a slightly off-kilter pop song, but dive a little deeper and you’ll pick out small details–warped synthesizers, hand claps, rudimentary attempts at beatboxing. The video’s a pretty lo-fi affair as well, with Micachu and her two bandmates in the Shapes playing with the notion of “professionalism” and having an even more fast-and-loose attitude toward the notion of coordinated dance moves.
