Pokey LaFarge’s ninth album, In The Blossom of Their Shade, is faithful to the musical tradition established by this St. Louis native. A talented singer and multi-instrumentalist, since his first album Marmalade was released in 2006, he has been working on a unique vision of the world that packs some humour and a particular idea of happiness, a cocktail of folk music from the Midwest with swing, blues, ragtime, and even music from the Caribbean. The first track, Get it ‘Fore It’s Gone, is a tangy little treat, a summery ritornello that gets stuck in your head after just one listen… This album also marks Pokey’s departure from Los Angeles, after several years of ups and downs and self-destruction. In 2020, the songwriter decided to move to Austin, Texas. He didn’t totally forget Los Angeles: he went to an LA studio to record part of the record, with other sessions taking place in Chicago. There, Andrew Heissler (as he is also known) recorded the ten tracks that make up this album, once again finding his loyal producer Chris Seefried at his side. In The Blossom of Their Shade is a beautiful collection of optimistic ballads, rhythmic or languid by turns, and one sometimes thinks of lazy afternoons dancing on a Hawaiian beach… Like on Drink of You, a pretty ballad where love and alcohol blend together… This is an album to be enjoyed like a mojito at the water’s edge… – Yan Céh
