Shapeshifting genius Mica Levi does dream-pop with scorched, screwed effect somewhere between MBV, Spacemen 3 and Arthur Russell, and now available on its first vinyl pressing with their own label.
Thanks to pressing plant lags the physical item ‘Ruff Dog’ finally appears six months after the digital release, and following very much in the vein of their back-to-basics garage scuzz album with Good Sad Happy Bad. However, this is Mica solo, stripped to raw, jangly guitars and drums that sound like they were recorded in her bathroom, emphasising a kind of janky, DIY directness and fidelity that’s always been at the heart of their music, but rarely heard so sore and wickedly strung out as they do here.
