Malajube is proud to present their much-awaited new album: La Caverne. Two years after Labyrinthes' release, this album takes us back in Le compte complet territories, the first Malajube album, with its pop inclinations and the urgency that flows throughout the tracks. The band showcased all their features: raw energy, hyperactive melodies, cavernous textures, creative structures, spontaneity and attention to details. In a ruthless world, Malajube do it their way, cloud the issue and present a surprisingly happy and driven with an urgency to live. From the Stone Age to the Plastic Age, between prehistoric times and show-bizness. A carefully chosen selection of borrowed pop elements to create a sonic drug. A retro-futuristic musical mixture, pleasantly irreverent and animal-like. The quartet (Thomas Augustin, Francis Mineau, Mathieu Cournoyer and Julien Mineau) took the writing, recording and production of La Caverne's 10 titles in their own hands. Ryan Battistuzzi, their long-time collaborator, mixed the album. Recorded in Morin Heights, Quebec, in a "geodesic modern cavern, with multiple triangular faces", says the band. Never one to forgo their own native tongue to satisfy their growing international fanbase, Polaris-nominated, Montrealers Malajube speaks to its audience in vocal mystique and deliriously catchy indie pop. With three full-length albums under their belt - all of which were recorded in French - their fourth album La Caverne is a dazzling soundscape of glowing synths and scintillating rock. Malajube's streak of press appraisal for their discography lives on with the rave reviews of their latest release La Caverne. As described in Pitchfork's recent 7.0 album review, Malajube's latest songs are characterized by their "smooth yacht rockin' disco or their upbeat, glockenspieled pop". Clocking in at just over 30 minutes, the album is a brief yet immediate burst of infectious indie pop that'll leave you wondering what just happened and unknowingly craving for more. A spate of May tour dates through Quebec and Ontario saw Malajube swoop down into the States for a handful of shows in the Northeast that include gigs at Bowery Ballroom in NYC and Great Scott in Allston, MA with hometown chums The Besnard Lakes. A second round of sonic assault is now slated for October 2011 with more to come. While audiences sway about dumbfoundedly to the meaning behind their songs - let along their band name - their live show is a sonic joie de vivre that speaks to all eyes and ears
