But aside from congratulating all you Argentina fans out there, I wasn't intending to talk about soccer today. No, the Canada connection du jour is musical, and comes under the name Le Fuzz.
Their just-released album consists of 11 rather eclectic tracks, starting with the Nicaraguan folk song "Banana," ending with the peace-mongering song "Quoi t'as l'ar?" and betwen them visiting cultures as diverse as France, Russia, Spain, Mexico, and Cuba. They sound like some crazy lost Latin-Cajun-Gypsy tribe that isn't afraid to party. Great to hear such spicy folk-roots music coming from up north. Give 'em a listen:
[mp3] Le Fuzz: Un Son Para Mi Pueblo
[mp3] Le Fuzz: Doomila
all from the album Vie la Vida!
At present, you can download two additional tunes (Banana and Brule) from the Le Fuzz myspace. There must be a way to buy their album, but no link is apparent on their website or myspace (hint to band: make more money! make it easy to buy your CD!).
