Hurray for the Riff Raff
Alynda Segarra is the rock star we needed. Her group, Hurray for the Riff Raff, has been making americana seem more vital than it has felt in decades. Their latest record, The Navigator, feels like the arrival of a needed voice. A Bronx native now located in New Orleans, Segarra has a beautiful voice that delivers incisive and world-weary lyrics. While HFTRR's previous records have been more folk-oriented and more personal and intimate, The Navigator takes a hard turn into narrative rock opera.
