Leopard Skin Coat

by Swamperella

Zydeco, Cajun and some Bluesy Rockin tunes played from the gut by a kick ass northern band. This 4th release is honed to a razor sharp edge with love and dedication to the Cajun tradition.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Swamperella,
Leopard Skin Coat. Cajun / Zydeco group have an antedote to the winter blues: dancing. The band's fourth album is the perfect sound track for skating (something I have personally tested out) or any kind of activity involving movement.
Though they are from Toronto, the fieve piece display an exuberance and enthusiasm for Cajun music that is as infectious as it is DIY and Punk Rock- they aren't purists, and let bits of silliness and rock n' roll slip in throughout the album's traditional tunes sung in English and French.
The warm, live sounding production makes Leopard Skin Coat sound like it could have been recorded at any point in the last 20 years, though some of the tunes are much older than that.
And it's not all a party. They end with a wailing mournful rendition of the Balfa Brothers' Valse de Balfa.
