The Lagniappe Sessions :: Greg Ashley

Lagniappe (la ·gniappe) noun ‘lan-ˌyap,’ — 1. An extra or unexpected gift or benefit. 2. Something given or obtained as a gratuity or bonus.

Best known as the leader of the Texas cum Oakland psych outfit The Gris Gris, Greg Ashley has been gracing the pages of AD since its 2005 inception -- the year he released Medicine Fuck Dream, a record we likened to "swimming through a pool of hot jello...slow, heavy, fuzzy, druggy, dense and sticky sweet." Still apt today. Ashley’s new album Pictures of Saint Paul Street, out June 30th on Trouble In Mind Records, marries his influences into one giant middle finger to the jerks of humanity -- resulting in one of the most raw and honest albums of the year.
