Hurray for the Riff Raff, a Crescent City outfit, churns out consistently beautiful and often heartbreaking folk music. Alynda Lee Segarra’s vocal stylings are perfectly suited to delivering songs about loss, about grief, about rambling, and about staying put. Yosi Perlstein provides some damn fine fiddling, but the tracks that stand out most are the sparsest and most haunting like “ramblin’ girl” and “something’s wrong”. The album’s opener is a rowdy and exuberant take on an old folk tune that has great energy. Ditto for “Lake of Fire”. Give this a chance!
