Suplecs

Mad Oak Redoux (Small Stone)

Surviving the near-death experience of Hurricane Katrina, Crescent City's Suplecs vent swamp-metal spleen on the trio's fourth LP, mainstays Danny Nick and Durel Yates indicting a corrupt and bulbous "FEMA Man" ("FEMA man turns his back on me, well, I guess that's expected. I just thank the good lord above for the blues skies of Texas"). The canal-deep "2 X 4" flows into bilge closer "Switchblade." Et trois! (Thu., 12mid, Barbarella)
