The second album from Micachu & The Shapes is "Never" and it's on Rough Trade and wow, is it weird? A lot. The other night, I was channel surfing and I kept returning (for obvious reasons) to a Suicide Girls movie with all this weird music, none of which I could identify - weird like this, weird like the Firesign Theatre's classic observation, "Gas Music From Jupiter." All I know, it's electronic and propulsive rock and one cut, "Heaven," could've been a Love & Rockets song. It's all good driving music but you will be risking a speeding ticket of you're not careful.
