Micachu vs. Santogold

Always sweet to anything having to do with new talent out of England I very happily have taken a liking to Micachu. She has been receiving the type of buzz on her side of the pond that Santogold has been the recipient of here. The fresh-faced 21 year old not only snagged a place on Accidental Records roster but inspired and Matthew Herbert to take her under his well-accomplished wing. Her band, The Shapes will find fans for those who are stricken with the Crystal Castles/Fuck Buttons/No Age syndrome. For those of you who are truly musically talented it might impress you even further to know that she was one of only four young composers to be chosen by the London Philharmonic to compose a piece for a later performance/production and they have already performed a symphony she composed. Very impressive indeed. Her gentle voice might remind you of Emmy the Great and her songs are happy and upbeat enough for you to want to put them on your ipod straightaway. Keep an eye on this one!
