#NowPlaying MG's Pick of the Week: Ohbijou (Guest Post)

Hi! Martha here.

It's been a crazy week as I've been rushing around like mad trying to catch as many shows at the Halifax Pop Explosion as humanly possible. I started off this week with Ohbijou, and I think you should check them out.

This seven piece ensemble was an absolute delight. Plus they have a violinist - who doesn't love a good strings section? Honestly, I can't even do their music any justice by just talking about it - just watch the video.

Okay, that's it for right now because (unfortunately) the laundry isn't going to fold itself - and I really need a nap if I am going to make it through round 4 tonight.

Talk to you next week,


I could see myself maybe finding one song of theirs that I didn't mind and then listening to it occasionally...but a whole album...without a dose of something with a little life?  Nope.

Based on this one video I would have to say...this is hipster music, but not the good kind that eventually turns mainstream because it is bearable and then all the hipsters turn their backs on the band that they once loved. Nope, this one will probably stay hipster popular for years to come.

You win some you lose some MG. Last week was a win...I will defer back to that.
