Pick Up a Copy of Mojave Stories Good Music, Good for the Environment!

Published: December 24, 2008

Have you heard of Mojave? Ill admit that I hadnt until I had the CD forwarded to me and Ive got to say that I really loved what I heard.

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):

If you like what youve heard, you can pick up a copy of the album through iTunes, CD baby and Amazon.

You can also check out the band at one of their upcoming shows:

  • Jan 10, 2009: Wired Bean, North Vancouver, British Columbia 8pm
  • Feb 10, 2009: The Roxy, Vancouver, British Columbia 8pm
