ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MALBEC

PABLO SIGNORI, lead vocals/guitar
SAMANTHA BARBERA, bass guitar
SIDNEY MILLER, keyboards/laptop
MARK PONTIUS, drums
NICK RUTH, guitar/background vocals

Guitar-based, pop-fluent and beat-savvy, the Los Angeles-based five-piece band Malbec pours out a richly textured sound as diverse as the backgrounds and styles of its members. Alike only in the extreme spirit behind their playing, their collective artistic statement makes for an improbable but blissful musical marriage. Theirs is a hyper-melodic and intensely atmospheric tonal landscape propelled by soulful vocals, observant lyrics and brooding bass lines. Underneath, a tightly calibrated hip-hop foundation counterpoints Malbec’s fluid double guitar signature, resulting in an authentic and ambient groove impossible to define by any of the “genre hyphenates” bandied about in the brave new world of post-modern music.

Founded in early 2004, Malbec’s unique dynamic does share a quality or two with the grape after which it’s named. The band’s titular tip of the hat to righteous earthy passion is a link to the roots of lead vocalist/songwriter/lyricist/guitarist Pablo Signori, whose family emigrated from Argentina to the outskirts of Detroit where he grew up, heavily imbibing indie rock and jazz.

Malbec’s most celebrated contemporary incarnation

I heard solstice on the dvd series The Long Way Round and loved it. Bought the cd and every song is just as good.

Nick Beets

CD is wonderfully composed, band really taking off.
This CD is nothing short of amazing. Featuring 3 songs from recent tours as well as some new studio tracks, one listen to this cd, and its no wonder their taking the LA scene by storm.

WOW
First heard them at an informal concert on the UC Berkeley campus, then checked out their cd. Absolutely unique and amazing. A little reminiscent of Ben Gibbard.

Rick

AMAZING
Bought the CD because a friend told me you guys are blowing up in the LA area. Gave it a listen, and cant take out of the CD player. Cant wait for more! Good work
