Cardiff, Wales local Cate Le Bon matched her slightly spooky, fragile tone of voice with dark lyrics — she confessed to getting death-fixated — and a sparse, spindly acoustic guitar audio. In 2007, she opened up for Super Furry Pets’ Gruff Rhys, with whom she sometimes collaborated, throughout a tour from the U.K. That same yr, she self-released her first solitary, “NO-ONE CAN Pull Me Down”/”Disappear,” and documented an album, Family pet Deaths, that was shelved. Edrych yn Llygaid Ceffyl Benthyg, a Welsh-language EP, was released on Peski in 2008, the same yr she added vocals to “I Lust U,” a music from Rhys and Bryan Hollon’s Neon Neon recording Metal Style. Me Oh My, Le Bon’s 1st album to really be released, arrived on Rhys’ Irony Fed up label in ’09 2009 and was hotly tipped by Uncut journal. Her sophomore launch, Cyrk, which combined the spooky, folk-tinged timbre of Nico using the experimental, Nuggets-meets-Krautrock assault of Operating-system Mutantes and Faust, found its way to early 2012. Arriving in 2013, the well-received Mug Museum noticed Le Bon relocating to LA, and presented a visitor appearance from Perfume Genius within the monitor “I BELIEVE I Knew.” Hermits on christmas, a cooperation with American vocalist/songwriter Tim Presley beneath the moniker Beverages, found its way to 2015, accompanied by an all-new studio room album, Crab Day time, in early 2016.
