How I wish I had worked a little harder in my french lessons at school. I can currently ask for croque monsieur and occasionally explain to those who wish to know, that although I did take french A levels, I also failed them, but would they like some peas?
With that in mind, I have no idea what french-canadian band Malajube are actually singing out – but it does sound awfully jolly. Sounding a bit like bands such as Broken Social Scene and the Shins, Malajube create joyful indie melodies that have had them on repeat. Whilst they’re probably singing about eating little children or granny bashing, the abscence of anything that I can understand on their 2006 release; Trompe-L'oeil means I’m happy to bop along in time.
