Listening to...

One of my favourite foods is the chickpea. Humus, falafel, or just straight out of the can! Well, today I got a taste of a newest garbanzo on the market. My dear friend, Sarah, who took me under her wing when I first moved to Brooklyn, just sent me a link to her sister, Genevieve's band, The Chickpeas! [That's her on the album cover.] I love the name so I had to have a listen.

Genny's voice reminds me of the lead singer of the Cranberries, who I loved back in the day. The music is folksy, and seems to be a perfect soundtrack to a lazy Sunday. Have a listen to all the songs on Woe is Me here. You can even buy the whole album for $5.99 here.

[Sarah's very talented husband, Nico, designed the Chickpeas' website.]

I hope you'll check out Genevieve and the Chickpeas, and tell me what you think.
