Malajube YouTube

Through the filter of friends, Anne-Marie showed me this link the other night and I was thrilled! Not only did I find a new band to collect albumns from, but I got remotivated to bust my hump on my own animation goal and Shybird Studio. The simply drawn characters are so sweet and the simple camera pan transcends all of those mundane adjectives. Malajube is an indie rock band based in Montréal, Québec, Canada. The band has two albums out on Dare to Care Records.

A group of high school friends from Sorel, Quebec, the band made itself known in 2004 with the release of its first album, Le Compte complet. Critics welcomed the disc with positive reviews, which allowed the group to become instantly famous in the Québécois music scene. Several of its songs, such as "Le Métronome" and "La Valérie", were prominent mainstays on several Québec radio stations. For the production of the album, the group turned to Martin Pelland from fellow Montreal band The Dears.

On October 17, 2006, Malajube released their CD Trompe-l’œil in the U.S. They also participated in the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City on November 2, 2006. Visit the band's website to learn more.
