Welsh indie-folk queen Cate Le Bon has ties to fellow Welsh psych supergroup Super Furry Animals, though she is most often compared to legendary Velvet Underground femme fatale Nico. Le Bon’s vocals offer that same enthralling eccentricity while her lyrics are gorgeous and head-scratching at the same time. “If you don’t believe in stones, I’m gonna cry in your mouth,” she sings on “I Was Born on the Wrong Day,” from her fourth record, this year’s Crab Day. Accompanying her sometimes oddball lyrics are some of the most beautiful electronic folk guitar arrangements to come along since Andy Warhol’s human art project.
