Sometimes something totally unexpected finds its way to your inbox - and it turns out to be exactly what you needed to hear. That sums up how I felt when I pressed play on The Revelers' latest, The Revelers Play Swamp Pop Classics Volume Two, a four-song set on which the Grammy-nominated band revisits the genre of Swamp Pop delivering a dose of bliss for your ears.
Hailing from Southwestern Louisiana the sextet combines the different sounds of the region including Cajun, Zydeco, Honky Tonk, and even Rock 'n Roll into something dynamic, different and delightful. Things blast off with a bright dose of horns and retro-stylings in "Trip To The Moon" before finding accordion and saxophone on the melancholy "If It's Really Gotta Be This Way." The brief outing is rounded out by the swoonworthy "Nobody Would Know" and a rollicking, dance floor ready rendition of "Lonely Women Make Good Lovers."
The Revelers Pay The Swamp Pop Classics Volume 2 releases December 16th.
