The album was recorded in Nashville and produced by Andrija Tokic who had a had in the much hyped Alabama Shakes album, Look Out Mama is the bands third / fourth album (for the explanation) and is little more polished but every bit as convincing as their previous output – Alynda Lee Segarra vocals are once again beguiling, I’ll try to keep you posted on the UK release in the meantime here’s the title track and a favourite from the album.
