ICYMI- Sad Clowns, Service Jobs, and ‘Poached Eggs’- Stream Bruisey Peets’ New Album!
New Orleans based band, Bruisey Peets has released their queer, swamp pop and piano based album, Poached Eggs. With a little help from the guys in Lost Bayou Ramblers and Brass Bed, the album is an airy yet heart-wrenching commentary on “small business capitalism” with some really gorgeous cajun influences.
