Feufollet - Two Universes [LP]
Although Feufollet has often been hailed as the future of Cajun music, a more current assessment must admit that they are now the present of Cajun music. Once idolized at an early age for their precocious musicianship and sent all over the world as youthful emblems of Acadiana's cultural resurgence, the members of Feufollet have, in the meantime, grown into the music as young adults.
While Feufollet remains central to the neotraditionalist brush fire they helped ignite as youths, their last album, En Couleurs found the band coming into its own and pushing the envelope, leading the way once again as Cajun music extends itself into a new century. It was praised by the New York Times, Garden & Gun and Elvis Costello who proclaimed ''En Couleurs is the most beautifully melodic album I've heard all year''. The album was nominated for a Grammy award in 2011.
The sextet now includes singer/multi-instrumentalist Kelli Jones-Savoy and keyboardist Andrew Toups. Two Universes, the long awaited follow up to En Couleurs, was recorded and produced by Danny Reicsh at his studio in Austin, TX during the summer of 2013 and early 2014. The album is set to be released in early 2015 on Feufollet Records and to be distributed by Thirty Tigers.
