    This is, like, the greatest album ever. Nice to find it on, like, the greatest music blog ever. Ok, so maybe I exaggerate a tad on the record, but I have yet to find a better music blog. Thanks so much!

    This is a very exciting album. I didn’t know there was such a genre of music. I love Zydeco & Cajun music from Louisiana, and this reminds me of that because of the exuberant accordions. Thank you again!
