CATE LE BON
WhenMon. 7 Nov, 2022
"Through her many outlets, Le Bon has proven herself as one of the 2010s’ most singular minds."
The past few years have seen Le Bon emerge as a much lauded and sought-after collaborator,producing albums for contemporaries such as Deerhunter (Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?), John Grant (Boy from Michigan), and forthcoming albums from both Devendra Banhart and H. Hawkline. She’s not so much a gun for hire as a multi-faceted artist and producer who can both steer the ship and tap into a collective mindset; in 2019, she joined John Cale for a three-night live stretch in Paris, and 2021 will see a bass appearance on the track "If I Don't Hear from You Tonight" from Courtney Barnett's Things Take Time, Take Time. As Bradford Cox aptly notes about Le Bon, "there are artists who look inwards or outwards, and thenthere are the very rare ones who transcend either location."
