What do you get when jazz, hip-hop, and funk make a musical love-child? The fast-rising Montreal group New Apple Taste!

The 5-musician, 2-emcee group features rap vocals by Christopher Mancini and Luis Rotondaro (aka GrandBuda) and launch their 2nd album ABUSEUM this Wednesday at Sala Rossa.

Their new song "Look At Those Skinny Legs" is a perfect amuse-bouche to the group's musical style(s)--it's catchy, irreverent, and a little addictive. It's also the perfect antidote to the sometimes overwhelmingly serious indie music scene. New Apple Taste are fun, fresh, and too busy being great to take themselves seriously.

To listen to ABUSEUM, check out the bandcamp website for the album, or drop by the launch event and experience it first-hand! Tickets are $10 presale, $12 at door, and show starts at 8pm.

New Apple Taste's full lineup is Charles-Éric Lavoie (guitar/noise), Eliott Durocher Bundock (guitar/synth/noise), Elyze Venne-Deshaies (saxophones/clarinets), Vincent Lévesque (bass), Julien Daoust (drums), and Christopher Mancini and Luis Rotondaro on vocals.
