Signs of the uniquely colorful life in New Orleans are steadily returning, and an odd band called Morning 40 Federation is glad to provide the soundtrack.
Josh Cohen, saxophonist of the multi-piece noise-jazz outfit, says the Ninth Wards patchwork of artists, outlaws, oddballs and icons all contribute to his bands wildly quirky sound.
Cohen says their music is also very much like the wake of Katrinas devastation ugly, but increasingly hopeful.
He adds, Its like its the morning after and you have to piece together the previous night like a private eye trying to solve a murder except all we killed were brain cells.
Morning 40 Federation are currently touring behind their sophomore album, Ticonderoga.
