NOLA Chill-billy / Folk / Americana. Alynda Lee Segarra is a Brooklyn born transplant to NOLA. Imagine a southern chill-billy Cat Power. Then inject a healthy dose of shotgun houses, Boudin, and lyrics about lost lovers. FCC clean. Play 11, 6. RIYL: Cat Power, Sturgill Simpson, Mandolin Orange, Julie Byrne.

1. (2:33) Blue Ridge Mountain. Channels Eastern Tennessee. Mediocre interpretation but pretty voice.
2. (2:45) Crash on the Highway. * Plodding and funky Louisiana folk. Fun and mellow.
3. (5:17) Good Time Blues. * Slow and an almost lumbering while sweet and pretty. Beautiful voice.
4. (3:38) End of the line. * Mid-paced and chill Louisiana party song. Fiddle and harmonica.
5. (4:01) The New SF Bay Blues. Love lost in SF. Acoustic walks pull you in. Pretty and intimate.
6. (2:49) The Body Electric. ** Slow and plodding, beautiful vocals, great lyrics, morbid…
7. (3:17) No One Else. NOLA chill-billy party rock.
8. (5:09) St. Roch Blues. * Mid-paced and mellow. Fun with great atmosphere and sucks you in.
9. (3:50) Levon’s Dream. Pretty and dreamy song about heartbreak. Guitar driven with some soft piano and fiddle.
10. (2:58) I Know It’s Wrong (But That’s Alright). Louisiana party song about love lost.
11. (4:28) Small Town Heroes. ** Intimate and medium paced folk. Great lyrics.
12. (3:18) Forever Is Just a Day. *Lo-fi, slow, vocals over fiddle. Showcases Segarra’s talent as a vocalist.
