A free MP3 just been made available this morning from CATE LE BON, the album ‘CYRK II’ is out soon and she’s touring the UK in September. With Guitars were singing her praises it seems like ages ago, buy it is no surprise, the press do and of course Pitchfork.
“like an unearthed psych classic” NME 8/10
“absolutely brilliant” Drowned In Sound
"Le Bon’s days as a farmgirl in West Wales may be long behind her, but she’s clearly held on to certain agricultural principles: namely, that the right amounts of patience and nurturing can produce glorious yields." Pitchfork
The second album by silver-plated songstress Cate Le Bon, CYRK, was a bona fide critical hit (see above). The cavalcade of comparisons that crop up in every review – John Cale, Nico, Malkmus et al – give you an idea of the regard in which Le Bon is currently held.
She’s set to release ‘CYRK II’ (Ovni / Turnstile) on 20th August and its lead track, the wonderful ‘What Is Worse’, has just been made available today to give it a play below and click HERE for a free download
