I got there just in time to see Micachu & the Shapes who were good but maybe not ready for such a big stage just yet. (Her tiny guitar looked even more minuscule here.) They were much better when I saw them at Death by Audio in March. Their album, produced by cut-and-paste master Matthew Herbert is kind of hard to replicate live, but they do a pretty good job of it thanks to an array of kitchen-sink percussion. [Sound Bites]

Micachu & The Shapes are about to embark on a US tour with Brooklyn’s Chairlift. In case you missed them at Siren, you can catch them at the Bowery Ballroom on September 5.
