What can I say? Hurray For The Riff Raff’s track “Look Out Mama” hits every note you want it to. Spearheaded by multi-instrumentalist and vocal talent, Alynda Lee Segarra, Hurray For The Riff Raff captures the essence of decades of Americana pained blues, folk, country, and bayou. Her voice like a well-used guitar, carries a twang and life resilience that careens across generations or American sounds with unique courtesy and tribute. And there’s really only compliments to give to the rest of the band. The instrumentation strikes a chord of timely perfection. A soft rhythm, a pleasant guitar, and a versed fiddle plant the roots of Hurray For The Riff Raff’s sound. After partnering with the Tumbleweeds, the music exploded with vision.
Segarra’s sweet and lowdown NOLA band, Hurray For The Riff Raff demonstrates and tackles what many bands have tried to capture is recent years–a dusty scrapbook of American tradition. She and her band of friends are authentic Americana and sweat the grit, storyline, and gorgeous rough and tumble essence of old time and Americana. The band’s title track sums it all up! Go see them and dig it.
Did I mention Segarra is a kick ass yodeler?
