One of our favourite tape labels continue down that niche path shared by the likes of Mississippi / Angry Mom and explores a range of early folk songs from the Cajun peoples. Little heard in other parts of the world, this French-speaking hybrid of communal, everyday blues and typical Southern yodelling is one of the most fascinating arrivals we’ve heard in a long time. The lonesome sound of accordion and guitar accompany wailing voices telling stories of decades gone by - imagine the soundtrack to Ghost World, Michael Hurley and Brigitte Fontaine all rolled into one (kind of).
