Although not in fact French, as her facetious first press release penned by Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys suggested, Cate Le Bon could at times easily be mistaken as a lost Ye-Ye Girl. The Welsh born New Yorker now musician inspires immediate comparisons to Nico as well, but puts forth a somewhat more upbeat and up-to-date sound that’s all her own. Her third and latest release Mug Museum is a collection of simple and warm psych-folk & lo-fi California garage tunes with an old organ piping over the top and Le Bon’s wonderful vocals filling the space between.
