Sweet Crude joins New Orleans correspondent Gwen Thompkins

With deep roots in Louisiana, the six members of Sweet Crude make indie-rock with lyrics that combine English and Louisiana’s French dialect. And they celebrated in uniquely New Orleans style when they released their second album, Officiel//Artificiel – Singers Alexis Marceaux and Sam Craft share that story today, and describe their very different experiences when they each got sick with coronavirus. Plus, we’ll hear live music recorded after they recovered.
