It's "Fat Tuesday" and Galactic Is Back!
on February 21, 2012
Formed 18 years ago, Galactic is New Orleans' number one party band and an unabashed fan of the city's music and culture. Some older fans aren't happy with the band straying a bit from their funk sound and ditching a vocalist in favor of collaborators representing the best the city has to offer. "From The Corner To The Block" to "Carnivale Electricos" proves that the band is not willing to rest on their laurels and continues to mine new territory and grow and change. Some people don't like change. I become a bigger fan with each and every album. "Carnivale Electricos" is the band's first album dedicated to the carnival phenomenon that grips the streets of Rio De Janeiro and New Orleans. Guests on the record include the original vocalist for "Carnivale Time", Al "Carnival Time" Johnson, Mardi Gras Indian War Chief Juan Pardo, Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Cyril and Ivan Neville and David Shaw of The Revivalists, just to name a few. The album smokes, the musicians are killer, grab yourself one and crank it up!
