Mama Rosin Together with Hipbone Slim & the Kneetremblers

(Voodoo Rhythm) Wild English bluesabilly meets spooky Swiss Cajun combo and the results are greater than the sun of their parts, yielding low-key, high impact, sublime strangeness. These Europeans don't so much fetishize American rural music as they do practice it as a religion, and this is their authentic, sincere gospel music. Their squeezebox/shuffle version of "California Sun" (or "Louisiana Sun," as it's re-named here) sounds like a million Euros!
