Love Hope + Transportation

Released: 2005, Soona Songs

Recorded as part of the Malvinas

For The Malvinas, whose roster includes Crescent City singer-songwriter/fiddler Gina Forsyth, what also works are the cerebral songs, alternating vocalists, dovetailed delicate harmonies and fiddle-laced arrangements that frame a multi-hued personality. Forsyth’s “Sweet and Sunny South” is practically a Southern cultural anthem with such anti-antebellum lines as “We love our musicians/And our fascist politicians” and “But it’s grits and not granola/and they know it from Shin-Ola.” Dan Willging, Offbeat Magazine
