Cary Morin

Today’s episode is inspired by the new music more or less connected to Louisiana. We start off with the new names for us, one-man-band Jesse Dayton and native American guitarist Cary Moran. John Paul Keith is next with a Cajun tune on his latest live album, specially prepared to close the gap between releases during the pandemic. Slavic Soul Party also released a similar live effort. They are a brass band showcasing Balkan folk traditions, but Balkan brass bands are really not all that different to the New Orleans brass and I think it can be heard on the tune I selected for this show. Legendary Louisiana Le Roux are back with the new record. Rhiannon Giddens has a new single, and we check it out today as well.

SalvationWe have two bands with exciting new albums for the first time in The Little Lighthouse: Thee Oh Sees and The Intelligence. Another thing that ties the two bands together is also the song Block of Ice, which appears on both LPs. We also have Slavic Soul Party for the first time in our show with a cover of Toussaint’s Occapella fusing the Gypsy brass sound with New Orleans, which is something I always wanted to hear. Also, while we’re waiting for the new Ian McLagan’s album, we check out three different versions of the Faces standard Glad and Sorry.
