New Orleans-based indie folk outfit Hurray for the Riff Raff were formed by singer/songwriter/banjo player Alynda Lee, a Bronx-raised Puerto Rican troubadour who left home at 17 to ride the rails and eventually landed in the Big Easy. While Lee, drummer/violinist Yosi Pearlstein, and bass player David Maclay serve as the foundation for Hurray for the Riff Raff’s signature blend of folk-blues and Southern gothic Americana, the trio is often rounded out by a rotating cast of accordion, guitar, organ, and musical saw players. The band released its independent debut, Young Blood Blues, in 2010. An eponymously titled second full-length arrived the following year. Look Out Mama arrived in 2012, followed by My Dearest Darkest Neighbor in 2014. ~ James Christopher Monger
