Mayeux and Broussard. Those two names don’t exactly scream HONKY TONK maybe more like Coonass music. But what you get when you listen to their new CD High Times & Good Rhymes, is a great big ol dose of what they call Swamp Country.
I kept reading about these guys but had not had a chance to check them out.
Needless to say, I was basically hooked by the 2nd track, “Back At Home.” Reminds me a little of Matt Hillyer’s vocals and that’s a GOOD thing.
Track 3: “Three People”‘s line “There’s more to being a whore than being paid,” literally made me laugh out loud.
Track 8 made me smile. “Rolling In My Sweet Baby’s Arms” is one of my faves to hear and these guys do such a great job of it!
Despite the fact, the two front men, Tate Mayeux and Brian Broussard started their musical journey together in a metal band, this new CD shows off their Country, Cajun and roots background. Brian told Country Weekly magazine last month,“There’s a little bit of everything on this record,” Brian says. “It’s a gumbo of all these different styles coming together and our take on all that.”
I really can’t find a bad song on this CD. Do I think it should be added to your playlist? YES!
