Mica Levy “Good Sad Happy Bad”

“Mica Levi has one of the most singular repertoires in contemporary music – in the past few year’s she’d written the music for Dean Blunt’s opera, Inna, and the gorgeous soundtracks for JackieUnder the Skin and just recently Delete Beach. She also DJs and is the driving force in Good Sad Happy Bad. She’s no longer the singer, although the group still sound like Micachu & The Shapes. Keyboardist Raisa Khan now fronts the group, with her monotonous, alluring deliveries over wonderfully dysfunctional instrumentation, Levi’s guitar acting as both the bass sound and gnarly lead guitar. The soundcraft is bolstered by a saxophonist who last night made their live debut with the group, adding yet another layer to the glorious cluttered sounds already coming from the stage. That said, Good Sad Happy Bad retain the pretty elements of pop music, with infectious guitar grooves and vocal hooks” [ . . . ] More at The Quietus
