what im listening to right now: dirty bourbon river show's volume two

Posted by gregor on Saturday, April 30th, 2011

firstly, new orleans’ dirty bourbon river show aint gonna be for everyone. secondly, that shouldnt scare anyway away from digging into their brand of gypsy folk circus rock – their description not mine. their recently released volume two, but actually their 3rd record. its sounds like what maybe a lot of people think new orleans sounds like, full of horns, carnival barking, lyrics full of debauchery and possibly about pirates and just an overall vibe of we dont give a shit what you think. the record is a beautiful mess of all of that. let me clarify, its not a mess at all, in fact is wonderfully put together, but much like new orleans itself, its a both beautiful and kinda ugly – but in the best way possible. if you dig tom waits, firewater, theatre, and new orleans, you should find this to your liking, actually very much to your liking.

you can grab volume two via their band camp page or itunes.

    Yeah, that is definitely some strange shit. Little out there, but there’s no denying, it has balls…

    Actually, quite enjoyable. They sound like a mix of Tom Waits, Gogol Bordello and North Carolina’s Bombadil.
    Thanks for posting this one.
    Regards, Dave.
