The Deslondes are a New Orleans-based band, whose raw, stripped-down sound springs to mind a country-meets Southern-R&B hybrid rooted partly in the Texas singer/songwriter tradition, partly on the weathered floor of a Louisiana dance hall. Born from the same vibrant New Orleans scene as Hurray for the Riff Raff, the Deslondes put a distinctly Big Easy spin on country music. The Deslondes' eponymous debut full lenght, produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Benjamin Booker, Hurray for the Riff Raff) was released last year to rave reviews. The New York Times hailed them as "burgeoning stars" and Pitchfork said "their debut introduces a band that sounds confident and fully formed; they take nothing about country or R&B or New Orleans for granted, but consider everything anew". Uncut named it a "rich nuanced, fantastically enjoyable album that understands great music is often the product of a historical continuum rather than radical innovation."
