Somebody should check the water in Montreal; there's something fishy (Vichy?) going on. What else to explain the greatness of ARCADE FIRE's 2004 FUNERAL and the also-pretty-damn-well-swell 2006 debut by city-mates MALAJUBE? The latter group shares some of the former's boisterous energy, though its songs tend to play out in their native French. But no matter. The careening, devil-may-care soundscapes require no translation, and they've more than succeeded in keeping me occupied while awaiting Arcade Fire's upcoming effort. Viva la French!
