CATE LE BON - Cyrk

Bringing to mind such great singers as Bridget St. John and the late Trish Keenan of Broadcast, Cate Le Bon's second disc has the vocals, the tunes, and the production smarts to have endeared itself to plenty of our staff. Very recommended!

"Cate Le Bon marries simple jangly guitar chords with heavy-hearted Nico-esque vocals, bursts of woozy, disorienting noises and a subtly off-kilter sensibility that never lets you get too comfortable, no matter how peacefully drifting the melodies might be." - NOW

"Cyrk is Le Bon's second LP, and it's rife with blurting guitar, tweaky percussion, interjecting organ, and rolling drums, not to mention the occasional mournful trumpet solo set to formless orchestra noise. It’s a lot of loose rhythms and knotted nostalgia, but while her peers would spend an album weaving in and out of proverbial rabbit holes, Le Bon’s kaleidoscope is firmly focused." - AV Club
