about

Sweet Crude New Orleans, Louisiana

Indie rock Louisianais.

We are indigenous to South Louisiana. We would like to show the world that we can make progressive music that also embraces this region's French-speaking tradition. We are joining a small but fervent group of young Louisianians engaged in keeping the language relevant via art. Also we would like to drink whiskey and dance all the time. ... more

Track Name: Isle Dans la Mer
take a look gotta try not to speak
you push me to look not to speak

It's not a game for the tired or the weak
I'm not the same every day of the week

I count the things all the things that I love
there's a ring round the things that I love

You're alive even when it looks rough
from my lazy eyes it looks rough

marié avec un concept
(married to a concept)
après coucher avec un sentiment
(sleeping with a feeling)

We'll grow rich with every pitch it won't be long
There's a bridge under which I belong

don't know bout you I feel a tune coming on
I feel the flu the black and blue coming on

I'll be free it'll take an act of god
What I need is indeed an act of god

I'm taking flight at the speed of light what are the odds
Black and white wrong and right we're at odds

teach me while I sleep all alone
time to take your turn
teach me while I sleep all alone
only way I'll learn

(You're) one little isle in the sea
(I'll) wait for the lighthouse to find me

Marié(s)....

(listen to the sound)
des feuilles du gros chêne
(of the oak tree leaves)
dans la cour d'en avant
(in the front yard)
équand la lune est pleine
(when the moon is full)

(We did it to be happy)
On l'a fait…
(We did it…)
On l'a fait…

Mon esprit, mon esprit

(I’m gonna sing to free my mind)

écoutez le son
(listen to the sound)
des coeurs battants
(of beating hearts)
les souffles gaspillés

(the slamming doors)

Track Name: Laissez les Lazy
Daydream fever, think I’m getting heavy
Heavy as confetti, 
Spreading out like stars in the wind
Mon corps a été fait de soleil
(my body is made of the sun)

Windchime sounds like, ooh I think I love you
Too much does bug you? 
Non, je connais que tu m’aimes aussi
(No, I know you also love me)
Laissez les lazy mourir seuls
(let the lazy die alone)

Countdown three, two, one, we’re go for blast off 
Faster now we cast off, 
C'est vrai que tu veux te marier avec moi?
(you’re really marrying me?)
Ensemble comme la terre et la lune?
(together like the earth and the moon?)

Des amants, des amants vivent la vie dans des moments
(lovers living life in moments)
criant pour les bons temps
(shouting for the good times)
Track Name: La Cheminée
Toi t'as la chiminée;
moi j'ai le feu
(You've got the fireplace; I've got the fire)

Toi t'as les souliers;
moi j'ai les pieds
(You have the shoes; I have the feet)

What I need is what you got
Unless you've got it bad
In which case I've had enough for both of us

Toi t'as la carabine;
moi j'ai les bals
(You've got the rifle; I've got the bullets)

Et toi tu manques jamais;
je reste tranquille
(You never miss, and I stand still)

What I need is what you got
Unless you've got it bad
In which case I've had enough for both of us

Mon wagon a des roues en bois
et la boue, la boue c'est toi
Mon wagon a des roues en bois
et la boue, la boue c'est toi
(My wagon has wooden wheels, and you, you're the mud)

Toi t'as le coeur cassé
moi j'ai de la colle
(You've got a broken heart; I've got the glue)

What I need is what you got
Unless you've got it bad
In which case I've had enough for both of us
