Delightful Squalor is way of life; a celebration of ‘less is more’, a sweet and savoury something to fill your heart with song and light. It joins the seasoned talents of singer song-writers Lake Montgomery of Paris, Texas and Cera Impala of Flagstaff, Arizona. An authentic american duet, these ladies provide honeyed harmonies you can hope to taste with original songs, jazz, blues and folk to help you forget a world gone mad. Guitar, 5 string Banjo and ukulele in hand, they craft songs that feel timeless, songs to help sooth your day dreams along a road of country blues, gospel, folk and old-time jazz.
"Apparently in their “pre-pregnant phase”, the brilliantly-named Delightful Squalor feature Cera Impala and someone who may or may not be called Lake Montgomery, and they are brilliant. “Pre-pregnant” my backside, this is fully-cooked, being held upside-down by its ankles, and screaming like a damn goblin. Aside from looking brilliant and having a blast, their cover of Nina Simone’s “I Put A Spell On You” – doing it with an acoustic and a banjo – is ballsy and astonishingly well executed. Between Montgomery’s deeper range and Impala’s higher but raspy register, it’s a delight to behold. Lovely. "
