Hurray For The Riff Raff created a stir last time they played SXSW. Enough of one that Phil Alexander, the Editor-in-Chief of MOJO named the band the second best band he saw at SXSW 2011 and wrote, “Hurray For The Riff Raff evoke images of a lost America, her strange sepia’d country-folk vignettes, heartbreaking and poignant, provide a safe retreat and a place of freedom from the 21st century for those yearning authenticity and something tangible.”
The band is about to release their followup to the critically acclaimed 2010 release Young Blood Blues called Look Out Mama. You can preorder the record and get assorted goodies at their Kickstarter page here. The band plays Thursday March 16 at Treasure Island in Austin; more info here.
Here’s the title track to the new record complete with yodeling, some excellent fiddle playing, and as always the yearning strained (but beautiful) vocals of Alynda Lee Segarra.
