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.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
