On her debut album, 21-year-old Micachu manages to cover an unholy amount of styles. The newcomer from the UK, whose real name is Mica Levi, is a classically trained composer and instrumentalist signed to Rough Trade. Together with her band, the Shapes, Micachu attempts to drag electronic music out of the backward-looking rut it’s been in recently, but unfortunately she isn’t yet up to the task.

Herman Dune always makes for relaxing listening and Next Year In Zion is a fine addition to their impressively large back catalogue. For a pair of French hippies, David-Ivar Herman Dune (guitars and vocals) and Neman Herman Dune (drums) can put together really catchy songs, as was highlighted with the success of “I Wish That I Could See You Soon”, from the album Giant, which made Rolling Stone magazines’s list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007.

That’s a pleasant name for the band! Formed in 2002 they had gone through ups and downs like any other band. The third drummer drums with them since only some weeks now. The lead singer Johnny had a tragic love story going on with American actress Kerstin Dunst. But that’s on another sheet of paper.
