5 Cent Coffee – “Lost Parade, The” – [Self Release]
5 cent Coffee is self-described as a “4-piece post modern jug band”. This release is a two-disc concept album with tales of drinking, love, loss, death, rebirth, and drinking. Lots of acoustic junkyard blues, and carnival waltzing music with a bit of gypsy thrown in. The accordion, uke, and bass stand out here, followed by the sax, trombone, and lots of junk percussion. Moody, mournful, and blue, vocals vary from quiet solos to group howling. Good stuff.
