Cajun rocker C.C. Adcock has the instincts of a mad scientist. A graduate of Buckwheat Zydeco, the guitarist starts with sultry swamp-pop and tosses in a gaggle of weird, exhilarating sounds that somehow meld into a delicious musical stew. The ghostly “Y’all’d Think She’d Be Good 2 Me” blends jumpy dance rhythms, bluesy guitar, and Adcock’s purring yet ominous voice; “Blaksnak Bite” finds him grafting bright Caribbean beats onto chunky ’70s funk textures, with twangy surf guitar riffs adding extra spice. Even on his more conventional tracks—the Stonesy “I L*ve You,” or the power-chord orgy “All 4 the Betta”—Adcock is clearly having a ball. Lafayette Marquis is music for breaking furniture—or at least rattling windows.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
