Washington DC’s, The Torches, have finally released their debut LP. This is a follow-up to their well-received (and now out of print physically, but still available digitally) debut 7″/EP. Frontman Stephen Guidry comparisons to Tom Waits are easy but a bit lazy. Guidry is a native born son of the Cajun Coast of Louisiana and “The Authority Of” is rollicking, swamp-fueled rock! Where else you gonna hear oboe, banjo, accordion, and harmonica? Band members previously played with Travis Morrision Hellfighters, Parlour Scouts, and Soft Complex. Let them transport you to a turn of the century creole cookout along the Acadiana Bayou where swamp trash musicians, possessed by the sprits of John Lydon and Ian Sevnonious play their hearts out!
