The day has finally come that I feature one of my musical projects. For the past 15 years, I've been a member of The Amazing Nuns, an experimental rock band formed in 2003. This Friday we celebrate the release of our sixth album Chicken Little Was Right along with local garage rockers Carbon Poppies.
Both bands will make their debut at Lafayette's newest music venue The Pearl, located in the heart of downtown. A sister-site to the world-famous French Quarter concert hall One-Eyed Jacks, The Pearl aims to provide a space for regional and touring rock n' roll groups. At this show, one shouldn't ever expect to hear accordions or fiddles, but instead loud, electric guitars and synthesizers.
I'm opening this week's playlist with "Born to Lose," a hypnotic psychedelic-country flavored tune from The Nuns' latest album that features Lafayette multi-instrumentalist Chris Stafford on pedal steel. The vaporwave tribute "Raindrops" and swamp poppy "Go Away" are also in the mix. I also included a couple of tracks from Carbon Poppie's new 7" Rain On My Face as well as selections from Dickie Landry, Givers, and Corey Ledet.
