Oh c'mon! This is one of the best indie albums of 2006! Is it because they sing in french?!

Never saw this thread, obviously. But I enjoyed that album - they were disappointing live, though.

Bump. New album is ooot. I'd say it's slightly less epic than Trompe L'oeil but still a healthy dose of cabaret-prog-pop craziness.

Listen to the lead single: http://cdn.stereogum.com/mp3/Malajub...20Ursuline.mp3

A taste of Trompe L'oeil, for those totally not in the know:

Malajube - Pate Filo



And if that doesn't grab you, their most popular song:

Malajube - Montreal -40°C



Crazy good, I know. Now get Trompe L'oeil.

Oh, I didn't know they made a vid for this song. It's my favorite from Trompe...so...melancholically epic...

Malajube - Etienne d'aout
