Cate Le Bon - classic or dud

Well - I say classic, as I am very fond of her doomy neo-folk music. But what about you?

The New Dirty Vicar, Wednesday, 5 January 2011 16:27 (ten years ago) link

I have only heard one song of hers, on WFMU, but it was fantastic.

The album "Me Oh My" is amazingly good. I bought it on the strength of one track, which turned out not to even be the best thing on it.

i like this. i think it's something i'd need to be in the right mood for, though.

it's like vu + nico with a folk-prog overlay.

Finally getting around to this, I think the Le Bon moniker put me off checking it out. Particularly fond of 'Fold the Cloth' which mines the hiterto unexplored seam between Broadcast and the Incredible String Band.

Mug Museum is fan-fookin'-tastic. Basically adore this woman.

alpine static, Sunday, 10 November 2013 06:00 (seven years ago) link

She's been my main listening since finding out about her a few months ago. Still gathering my thoughts I why she's such a talent, but some listens to Mug Museum have me convinced. This is quite a run of albums.

bendy, Monday, 11 November 2013 01:53 (seven years ago) link

Not had chance to listen to the album yet, but our mug is lovely & only slightly wonky.

Wandering Boy Poet, Monday, 11 November 2013 13:17 (seven years ago) link

Just seconding the Mug Museum praise. This is seriously good. Should have a higher profile here.

dlp9001, Wednesday, 13 November 2013 19:26 (seven years ago) link

yep, CateLB rules, i've only heard bits and bobs of mug museum but me oh my and cyrk were both singular and great, a really endearing mix of sublime earthiness and scrappiness. are you with me now reminds me of linda thompson a bit . Excitingly, she's touring n the new year.

cw, Wednesday, 13 November 2013 21:06 (seven years ago) link

This record is so good. Listening to it for the first time now & every song within seconds becomes ridiculously charming.

Eyeball Kicks, Monday, 18 November 2013 16:35 (seven years ago) link

I think I like her last two better right now. The second half hasn't worked too well for me yet. Cyrk + Cyrk II are a great pair.

afriendlypioneer, Monday, 18 November 2013 17:44 (seven years ago) link

And yeah, I like the mug. It's sitting on a bookshelf.

reggie (qualmsley), Monday, 18 November 2013 20:05 (seven years ago) link

I like the second side better now. Mirror Me has this sort of sluggish rhythm that she always somehow makes lively. This record has fuller production, which is sometimes less distinctive than the early ones, but it's still top notch. Topper notch in places. Totally dig the Andy Mackay-like fills on the opener.

Saw her and her band open for Warpaint last night. Sometimes I like her Nico meets something or other vocals and other times she sounds screechy and annoying. Her guitar playing and the band sounded pretty good most of the time, in a Super Furry Animals meets Velvets and Stereolab way.

I love her voice and I love her guitar playing even more. I don't know if I like half of her latest album, although I haven't listened to it enough. Her first two are great back-to-front.

afriendlypioneer, Tuesday, 25 March 2014 19:48 (seven years ago) link

one year passes...

Cate Le Bon wrote some of my favorite words of 2013 on her album Mug Museum. White Fence is the swirly psych-like music of Tim Presley. Cate and Tim are friends — Cate played guitar on a tour with White Fence — and so now there's this: DRINKS.

DRINKS has an album coming August 21 and this is the title track, called "Hermits on Holiday." The percussion is a machine at the start, the guitar distinctly Cate, as is that thickly Welsh voice. Tim plays bass on this song, though he told me on the phone that they swap instruments a lot on the album. When that bass kicks in, so does White Fence drummer Nick Murray and the song's lockstep rhythm loosens up, as if it's had a drink. The easy joy and silliness here make me look forward to hearing the full album, Hermits on Holiday.

Love Cate, but the song is about as boring as the name of her new band. It's also kind of annoying. It's a shame because I kind of had a feeling they'd sound like this.

Classic - maybe my favorite live performer right now, I find her mesmerizing. Bowery Ballroom show on Monday was great, and what I've heard of the new record sounds v. promising (love the Wonderful video). Seen her four times now and each time she makes it new.

by the light of the burning Citroën, Friday, 15 April 2016 00:18 (five years ago) link

I like the new one. I don't think any of the songs are as strong as the best material on Cyrk or Mug Museum, but her guitar playing remains great. Her backing band is pretty cool, too: Josh Klinghoffer from RHCP and the drummer from Warpaint.

H. Hawkline also rules. People need to listen to him.

afriendlypioneer, Friday, 15 April 2016 13:39 (five years ago) link

"Find Me" is awesome.

afriendlypioneer, Friday, 15 April 2016 13:39 (five years ago) link

I think on first acquaintance I might like Crab day best of all CLB's records. Generally she ricochets back and forth between dolorous gorgeousness & a kind of endearing spazziness, whereas this one sort of does both at the same time all the way through. I certainly don't hear any dip in the songwriting either from mug museum. i was a bit worried after drinks, but this great.

cw, Monday, 18 April 2016 21:46 (five years ago) link

Nothing as good as 'Shoeing the Bones' or 'Fold the Cloth' to my ears.

afriendlypioneer, Tuesday, 19 April 2016 17:56 (five years ago) link

The album has grown on me, but was a let down for the first bunch of listens. Had to come to terms with the realization that as long as she's so drawn to LA, she's not going to be making more 'Shoeing the Bones' or 'Fold the Cloth' styled material. I rate her as one of the top minds at work right now, so I'm not sure if I'm cutting her too much slack, or catching up with where she's going.

I've always loved al little vibraphone. Not exactly a Cate Le Bon release, but Banaa includes her and the backing band she performed Crab Day with when she toured last year.

"Rock Pool" is a really nice EP. Easy to see how these cuts did not make it on "Crab Day", they definitely feel like solid b-sides. If you love that album this is a nice reprise of that style and the cuts are overall a bit more accessible and far more chill.

There's a sorta experimental film called Tomorrow Is Always Too Long by a young director named - and I kid you not - Phil Collins, which uses Cate Le Bon songs from Mug Museum but redone by a bunch of Glaswegian amateurs. The version of Are You With Me Now is particularly good. Anyways, it's recommended for fans, and is a fun film in general.

She has a new EP out with Group Listening, some different versions of songs from Reward. it's good

flappy bird, Friday, 13 March 2020 05:57 (one year ago) link

mainly into the redo of "Magnificent Gestures", which was already one of my favorite tracks off of one of the best albums of last year. And an especially wicked track when she performed it live, hammering the riff for an extra couple minutes at the end

Chief Kyiv, Friday, 13 March 2020 08:13 (one year ago) link

CLB's EPs are fascinating prisms of the albums proceeding. That she leaves material as strong as "The Eiggy Sea" and "Aside from Growing Old" off the main records in favor of more awkward and discordant stuff is fascinating. She's also had the Myths 004 EP with Bradford Cox in the last year, which does the tangled mucking of Drinks with better results. "What Is She Wearing" is a fine piece of Mark E Smith caustic laughs.

Yes, for all the Nico comparisons in her early work, she's always reminded me far more of Cale, particularly her melodic ideas.

corrs unplugged, Friday, 4 September 2020 07:44 (one year ago) link

yes she is a great songwriter - same thing happened to me with the sudden headlong rush of realisation that she is incredible except it was the previous album thats sent me into into the spiral of obsession and backward through her catalog - the latest one only came across to me as 'good' - I guess I like her when she is more eccentric and lets her wilder and more spiky tendencies hang out alongside her beautiful melodies - reward seemed too restrained for me but I still love her all the same

The New Dirty Vicar, Thursday, 22 October 2020 19:59 (one year ago) link

Same. Interest hit a high with Mug Museum and I loved that tour, but Crab Day and the newer one feel like she hit a wall.

afriendlypioneer, Thursday, 22 October 2020 20:47 (one year ago) link

I guess it's where you come in (also in the sense that you often jump on when the band takes a direction that catches your fancy)

I started with Reward and am much more into that than Mug Museum

this reminds me of le Bon

corrs unplugged, Friday, 23 October 2020 06:41 (one year ago) link

I think Cyrk, Mug Museum, and Crab Day are all excellent - Mug Museum being the peak. Reward has its moments but does feel like a step down. It doesn't feel as off-center as the others. Also her work as part of Drinks is hit and miss too, so Crab Day is starting to feel a little further back in the rearview mirror. Still look forward to whatever she does next.

sctttnnnt (pgwp), Friday, 23 October 2020 18:53 (one year ago) link

I love Me Oh My, thought Cyrk had its moments but also got a bit too guitar wanky, liked Crab Day a lot, and didn't really get anywhere with Reward. I think it might be relevant that I bought Crab Day after seeing her live - maybe if I had seen her touring Reward or Cyrk I would have loved those too.

The New Dirty Vicar, Friday, 23 October 2020 22:23 (one year ago) link

Cyrk/Cyrk II have settled in as my favorites of hers, and maybe my favorite record of the 2010s. Each of the first three albums hit me right away. The Pere Ubuisms of Crab Day and the keyboard constructions of Reward put me off at first, but they grew. I think "Meet the Man" might be her greatest song yet, even.

Julius Caesar Memento Hoodie (bendy), Saturday, 24 October 2020 17:23 (one year ago) link

I would assume this artist Accü is seriously influenced by her:

My taste in Cate is roughly the opposite of DV’s, I like her best at her most melodic and (maybe) stately. Reward’s probably my favourite; saw the London and Berlin Reward shows and the latter was amazingly good.

While Cyrk and Cyrk II remain my favorites, "Meet the Man" may be her greatest song yet. Hymn, existential lament, love ballad, warm and cold and odd and a comfort all at once.

And apparently I already said this a few posts up in this thread, almost exactly a year ago.

sctttnnnt (pgwp), Thursday, 7 October 2021 19:23 (two weeks ago) link

i keep going back to Crab Day and can't get into it! i don't know why. i think it's because, following Mug Museum it seems more like a transition to the sound of Reward.

Reward is really, really good imo.

Daylight Matters --> Home to You is an incredible sequence. i am influenced by my experience of it. i pulled a Bon Iver in the woods after my dad died and got a cabin for a few weeks. i held onto some shrooms until about halfway through, and then i BLASTED Reward in the woods on repeat. there was a very special 20 minutes or so where it was all at the perfect levels, and "Daylight Matters" came on again. "Love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, but you're not here. Love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, but you've gone", and it hit me so hard. i started dancing in slow motion on the little wooden chip path in front of the cabin in my bare feet. it was still wet from the rain the night before. i started to add my own words, changed from her version during the bridge, but just saying "and if we're going to meet again, i hope you'll be my friend. this time." and it was about my dad but also about my friends and everyone i've hurt and that has hurt me. it was incredibly powerful. Reward is worth some more listens, it's not superficial, the whole album is very good

Crab Day is the weakest but still knows how to lay on the charm. Too many chattering marimbas is the shortcoming for me.

Crab Day is the weakest but still knows how to lay on the charm. Too many chattering marimbas is the shortcoming for me.

Crab Day is actually the one that pulled me in to her stuff. I like all of the albums I’ve heard of hers, but Crab Day is still my favorite - one of those records that took a handful of listens to lock in but then slowly every song stood out. I love her guitar playing (and miss it from Reward), and I think the live stuff from that time (esp. from the initial March 2016 tour with the larger band) brings each of those songs into relief from the rest of the record.

city worker, Friday, 8 October 2021 01:19 (two weeks ago) link

agree hard out with missing her guitar playing - that vid above is stellar evidence of how good she is when she chooses to get messy / also agree Crab Day is her best record the oblique sharp edges make it much better for me than Reward which was decent but seemed a little too pored over & overstuffed with ideas to the extent it seemed to suck a little of the life & spontenaiety out of her sound - of course the one I like the least was her almost 'crossover' & v popular - anyways bring back that guitar wonk pls Cate!

I thought Reward kinda got close - didn't it nominated for a big award in the UK - I noticed a lot more press for it than previously so I assumed it did the best out of all of her records

clouds (peanutbuttereverysingleday), Friday, 8 October 2021 03:18 (two weeks ago) link

Crab Day is where she started running out of songs

Reward is where she lost her personality.

I used to really dig her music. Dunno. I'm surprised those two seemed to get more attention than the rest.

shit, i am happy and disappointed. i like the song a lot - i'm a sucker for her lineup right now, with the horn heavy composition, the staccato bass, the melancholy evening slink. "It's the sweetest thing / That you never have", that part, the first time it hits, is wonderful.

i am disappointed because i didn't do my "research" and thought the whole album was out today. i don't like this thing where you get singles for 4 months before the album
