  3. Check out the newest single “Flowers in Bloom” from local New Orleans band Rotary Downs. Co-produced by Jason Rhein of Elephant Quilt Productions.

    "Certain aspects of so many great records have influenced the music on TRACES: the controlled hi-jinx of Captain Beefheart’s Safe as Milk; the anything-goes experimentation of The Clash’s Sandinista, the universal horror/hug of David Bowie’s Hunky Dory, the radical sonics of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s Psychocandy, and perhaps, in some tiny way, the bliss-inducing jams on our favorite compilation: Sitar Beat! Indian Style Heavy Funk, Vol. I (which we like to blast through the p.a. before we play).” — The Vinyl District

She deftly weaves together threads of various roots musics from country to folk to blues, all draped in her literate lyrical sense." — The Times-Picayune, March 21, 2014 (Keith Spera)
