Micachu and The Shapes

2 hours
First broadcast:
Wednesday 17 October 2012

The joyous sonic melting pot that is Micachu & the Shapes are in the studio this evening.

Micachu is Mica Levi, a classically trained musician/artist/inventor and the Shapes are Raisa Khan on keys and Marc Pell on drums. Together they are Micachu & the Shapes, and how we love them.

Their second LP was released earlier this year and continues the bands journey in sound which has no end point. Involving standard instruments they also add the unusual like vacuums, industrial and homemade inventions. After the first LP there have been many side projects which have included the London Philarmonic Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and a Huston Hip Hop collective.

Having just finished a tour whatever tonight brings you can be safe in the knowledge that you will never hear anything like it again!
