Micachu & The Shapes are also putting the finishing touches to their new album, due out on July 23rd on Rough Trade.

Kwesachu is a collaborative project between Kwes and Micachu, started in 2008 with the release of the Kwesachu Vol. 1 mixtape: 50 minutes of cassette tape which proved that both artists were a match made in skewed pop heaven, and gave birth to ‘free pop’ – a philosophy of creating popular music that knows no boundaries, shuns no eccentricity and values inventiveness over any kind of rules that have gone before. This renowned mixtape, which features reworks of Hot Chip, Cibelle, Metronomy, Golden Silvers, The Invisible, Man Like Me, Finn Peters, and guest contributions from artists associated with the two musicians, including MCs Ghostpoet and DELS and Romy of The xx, is still available HERE.


Meantime, is released on April 30th. Listen to 'Bashful' taken from the EP below...
