Hurray for the Riff Raff is a recent addition to the explosive New Orleans music scene. Birthed in the summer of 2007 and bred in the heat of the crescent city, Riff Raff carries a sound that has an innovative mixture of Appalachian old time and minor key waltzes, without losing the grittiness of diy folk. The arrangement of Accordion, Banjo, Musical Saw and Upright Bass weaves you through heartbreak and triumph. "Hurray for the Riff-Raff's junkyard folk is stubborn, melancholy and beautifully played. Alynda Lee sings like Jolie Holland or Leslie Feist, lit up with sorrows. They are the perfect soundtrack to your Southern gothic romance, a junebug serenade, a two-step bramble-bush waltz.
