“The gleeful insouciance of LaFarge’s music is darn near impossible to resist.” — Los Angeles Times

“Modern troubadour Pokey LaFarge has an old-time band, out-of-time sounds and themes both ageless and current on Manic Revelations.” — Associated Press

“Unfaltering rhythm, optimistic gospel-pop melody and bright pops of brass contrast with his pointed observations about race relations and police violence in America.” — Rolling Stone

Recorded in LaFarge’s hometown of St. Louis, Manic Revelations features 10 new original songs and was produced by the Southside Collective—LaFarge, Joey Glynn (bass), Ryan Koenig (harmonica, guitjo, electric guitar), Adam Hoskins (electric guitar), Matt Meyer (drums, percussion), Luc Klein (trumpet, euphonium, piano, glockenspiel), Alec Spiegelman (saxophone, piano, tubax, organ, clarinet, flute), David Beeman (tambourine, stylophone, guitar, organ)—along with additional production by Tony Hoffer.

“The manic revelation is the state where artists create,” says LaFarge. “I got to the point in writing these songs where I felt like a house on fire that just kept burning.” He continues, “This album is about confronting yourself. It’s about confronting your city, its relation with the world, and all its people.”

Since his debut in 2006, LaFarge has released seven studio albums, including his most recent, 2015’s Something In The Water. Of the album, American Songwriter proclaims, “immensely enjoyable…the sheer joy of these performances is contagious,” while The Guardian declares it, “…a spirited attempt to keep American roots music—country blues, early jazz, ragtime and western swing—alive.”
