Ohbijou

I recently received the very first cd by Toronto six piece Ohbijou. Swift Feet For Troubling Times is a very fine debut. The songs were written by lead vocalist Casey Mecija who sings with her sister Jennifer. Their vocals provide an ethereal mix with the mainly orchestral music created with a variety of instruments including ukulele, banjo, glockenspiel, cello and mandolin. The music, self released, is at times melancholy but still leaves you with a nice fuzzy feeling. Another fine product from the burgeoning Ontario scene, the Mecija sisters also sung on the latest Final Fantasy record "He Poos Clouds."
Here is a track to try. Misty Eyes.
