Some old friends of mine from Centerville have a band called prospect mali, and they just put out their debut EP. The song “The Silence” (video below) was inspired by Jim and Pam’s romance on The Office. How can you pass up a song inspired by a TV romance?
The band’s name means “small street” in Russian. From garageband.com: “From 2001 to 2004, each member of the band spent some time on a street in St. Petersburg, Russia called “Mali Prospeckt,” although no two members were ever there together.”
Musically the EP exceded my expectations–really good percussion, vocal harmonies, and decent chord progression. You can buy the album at cdbaby.com, and is also available on iTunes!
Also, the bass player, Rob Green, was my drive-through bank teller for a few years. : )
