Caleb Klauder, Jesse Lége and Joel Savoy

The impeccable credentials of Caleb Klauder's whip-tight country band have never been in question for a second; their excellent, just-released Western Country album revisits the sounds of '50s and '60s country with authentic thump and twang. So now that Klauder's band has teamed up with Cajun accordionist/singer Jesse Lége and fiddler Joel Savoy, they can add the sounds of the bayou to their masterful repertoire. Like the truest Cajun music, this collaboration plays timeless dancehall tunes in a boozy, spicy two-step. Lége's vocals, sung in Cajun French, have all the careworn sound of a lifetime of honky-tonk Saturday nights and churchgoing Sunday mornings, while Klauder's agile band cracks and strums behind. Forget the DJs and the drink specials—this is going to be the best dance party of the week. NED LANNAMANN
