Lagniappe Sessions

From the lush, exciting outskirts of “left field” this series likes to summon, the band plucked for us Mac Miller’s ‘2009’ and Danzig’s ‘Am I Demon.’

…re-imagining ‘2009’s lovely strings and piano and ‘Demon’s classic riffage. Worthy and original results, to be sure.

David Nance knows his way around a cover, having previously recorded and released reimagined versions of Lou Reed’s Berlin, the Stones’ Goat’s Head Soup/, Doug Sahm And Band and Beatles For Sale – all of which disappeared faster than you can say NO RETURNS ON THE MERCHANDISE.

Better get these while they’re hot.

The Lagniappe Sessions blast off in 2021 with Alabaster dePlume–the man behind one of our favorite lps of last year. The following three covers find the artist paying tribute to friend and contemporary, Jaimie Branch, a traditional Russian love song, and the incomparable Arthur Russell.

Jack Name moves in the shadows. Born John Webster Adams, the perennial chameleon’s fourth album, Magic Touch, breaks in stark contrast from his previous solo work. Dialing back the multi-layered production, yet eschewing none of the soul, this latest offering finds the artist naked and at the fore. The following, his first Lagniappe Session, only compliments this approach.

Toronto’s Badge Époque Ensemble are a tireless assembly line of lysergic mood music, with November’s Self Help marking their third release in just over a year.

For their Lagniappe Session, Badge Époque picked a pair of unsurprisingly idiosyncratic songs to interpret from Henry Mancini in 1961 and Mica Levi’s 2013 Under The Skin soundtrack.

The past 18 months have found our ears trained on Brazil’s burgeoning contemporary music scene. To name a handful, Ana Frango Elétrico, Tim Bernardes, Sessa, Kiko Dinucci, Catavento, and O Terno’s records have all soundtracked our Los Angeles HQ.

São Paulo singer-songwriter Chico Bernardes is the latest to join this loose cadre, whose debut lp remains ripe and in steady rotation. For his Lagniappe Session the 20-year-old multi-instrumentalist reflects on early inspiration (Grizzly Bear), and local sonic compatriots (Sophia Chablau and Téo Serson).

As noted earlier this year in our review of Caravan Château, Alex Izenberg is not afraid of his influences. For this installment of the Lagniappe Sessions, the Los Angeles singer-songwriter digs into pathos of Plastic Ono Band’s “Love”, and “Living Without You” — a cornerstone of Randy Newman’s 1968 debut long-player. A warm blanket in the ever-bizarre autumn of 2020.

For his first ever Lagniappe Session, Liberty Hair Farm-based Austin McCutchen decided he’d look towards the sky. Recorded in quarantine and produced by Dan Horne, McCutchen’s takes on Jim Sullivan’s “UFO” (ft. Horne) and J.J. Cale’s “Cajun Moon” (featuring the Western Stars) offer us all a little respite from a weary world.

Dave Longstreth’s Lagniappe Session emboldens and broadens his homage to Gilberto. Performing two tender ballads from Stan Getz and João Gilberto’s seminal self-titled album, “Corcovado” and “Para Machuchar Meu Coracao,” Longstreth sings entirely in Portuguese, accompanied by only a nylon string guitar and the warm noise of a tape machine, in tribute to a bright and brilliant man and his all-embracing musical influence.

Eamon Fogarty’s 2019 lp Blue Values brought a jazzy, art-pop sheen to the songwriter’s cryptic and charmingly esoteric words. A winner from start to finish, it’s lingered on the turntable for quite sometime. For his very first Lagniappe Session, Fogarty teamed with drummer Ryan Jewell (Solar Motel, Ryley Walker) and his selections veer into the unexpected, covering Pacheco & Alexander’s “Since I Was Born” and Carole King’s “A Road to Nowhere.”
