Mojave is an acoustic band from Vancouver with a strong passion for music and environmental causes. They donate a percentage of their album sales to environmental charities through 1% for the planet and offsets all carbon emissions through tree canada. When I hear that sort of thing, Im immediately more willing to hear what kind of message a group is sending through their music.
The songs are haunting and just absolutely gorgeous. The music is minimal but thats the beauty of it – they let their lyrics, chords and lead vocals speak without cluttering up their songs with useless layers and distractions. I really cant decide on which track is my favorite but you can get a preview of some of the songs on Mojaves MySpace profile.
In the meantime, heres the tracklisting (they have the titles in lower-case so Ive kept them that way):
You can also check out the band at one of their upcoming shows:
