If you’ve been reading this blog for a while (or browse the right sidebar) you know that I have an affinity for world music, although lately I’ve been too lazy to be industrious and seek out new international sounds. So I was pleased when this one landed in my lap (actually, my mailbox) and provided some pleasant Sunday afternoon music.
Malajube are five French-Canadian guys who have a bright, shimmery, eclectic album with Trompe-L’oeil (2006, Dare To Care Records). It was actually makes quite the spunky soundtrack for some serious housecleaning, but they don’t put that on the press sheet. And no, I don’t know what they’re saying.
They’re on tour with Snowden (including Noise Pop!) and will be at SXSW this March.
