Cate Le Bon is a singer-songwriter from Cardiff, Wales, who sings in both English and Welsh.Le Bon first gained public attention when she supported Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals on his 2007 solo tour. She also appeared as a guest vocalist on Neon Neon's 2008 single, 'I Lust U'.
As befits a songwriter who only writes in the dark, the album is a heady and highly personal Gallic stew of equal parts Nico, Bobbie Gentry, Stephen Malkmus, and the chronicler's own emotional observations on the impossibility of existence.
'Me Oh My' is complimented with artwork by existential DJ Huw Evans and accompanied by a Thriller-style short film by the visionary artist Casey Raymond, created for the song 'Hollow Trees House Hounds'.
"Cate Le Bon is one strange creature. Her odd, beautiful songs burrow like furtive woodland creatures to a safe nest lodged firmly between tradition and individual talent. She might stand clearly in a lineage of Welsh psych-folk from 70s acts such as Meic Stevens, Heather Jones and Bran (who she's covered live) through to luminaries and sometime collaborators Gorky's Zygotic Mynci and Gruff Rhys whose new label she makes her debut on. But if the influence of Rhys' quirky psychedelia is here, there's also rough guitars, spectral shanties and, drawing it all together, Le Bon's cool, Welsh Nico vocal." - NME 8/10
