The Lost Bayou Ramblers play songs from their new album Mammoth Waltz on The State of Things.
Lost Bayou Ramblers
/

Last year's independent film Beasts of the Southern Wild was a surprise box office hit.  The movie garnered four Oscar nominations and near universal acclaim. The soundtrack to the swampland fantasy prominently featured the music of The Lost Bayou Ramblers, a band born in Louisiana’s Cajun country. Host Frank Stasio talks with band members Louis Michot, Andre Michot, Cavan Carruth and Pauly Deathwish about their blended sound and the film.
