Take a waterproof sound system with 50 different speakers, a puppet show, and a cruise ship and not only will you have yourself a fucking good time but you'll be at a Quintron and Miss Pussycat show.
The husband and wife duo have announced a new tour to support their latest album, Sucre Du Sauvage, released earlier this year on Goner Records. Quintron has been creating “Swamp-Tech” dance music for over 15 years in New Orleans. Quintron also has a new invention to add to his list. The Swamp Stack is a new 70 volt waterproof mobile sound system able to run up to 50 different speakers at the same time. In the words of Quintron himself, it's “like a supermarket muzak system on steroids.” The Swamp Stack will make it's debut on the Bruise Cruise dates in early 2012.
Their newest album, Sucre Du Sauvage, was a work in progress from the end of January until May of 2010. Quintron recorded the album while “working” at New Orleans Museum of Art. The album was meant to be recorded in a public gallery space and when needed, Quintron would pull visitors aside to help him with vocals, hand claps, grunting, and more. The last week of recording, Quintron locked himself in the museum and New Orleans City Park recording field sounds and threading them into the final mixes of the album. Once the album was complete, the listening party was held in NOMA and all the attendees were blindfolded. The beauty in the album is that it is what it is. There was no post production, no overdubs.
The album is out now and if you can, catch Quintron and Miss Pussycat live on their upcoming tour dates. There's going to be a new puppet show, as well.
