Hurray For The Riff Raff – Look Out Mama (2012)

Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, Hurray for the Riff Raff is a mellow, indie/folk/country/alternative band lead by singer/song-writer Alynda Lee Segarra’s lulling voice. In comparison to Young Blood Blues, their debut album, “Look Out Mama” retains a sense of melancholic yearning, but mostly feels more upbeat, with a more wild honky-tonk sound coming in at key songs. By the fourth track, “What’s Wrong With Me”, I could hear a strong influence of Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris. Later in the album, at “Riley” I could hear my love for country and my love for alternative music successfully combined. There is something common about it, but usually that’s what characterizes Folk/Americana: a need for comfort and consistency.
