I just heard Pokey Lafarge and the South City Three for the first time. Their album “Riverboat Soul” recently won Best Americana Album from the Independent Music Music Awards, and they were just on NPR’s Tiny Desk Series. They are the perfect blend of music: a little old, a little new, perfectly addictive. I don’t know enough about music to dissect their influences, although NPR says Pokey “performs original and sometimes traditional music, steeped in American blues, country and Western swing from the days when 78s ruled the record player.” Montana spring might be full of rain and snow, but this music makes me feel like sitting on a porch swing with some lemonade, even though you couldn’t sit for long with this on. Give it a listen below:
