Some new artists bringing a different sound to the New Orleans Jazz &amp; Heritage Festival this year are <a href="http://www.myspace.com/lukewinslowking">Luke Winslow-King</a>, <a href="http://hurrayfortheriffraff.com/">Hurray for the Riff Raff</a>, and <a href="http://alexismarceaux.com/">Alexis and the Samurai</a>.</p><p>Alex Rawls, a New Orleans-based writer and editor who runs the music and culture website <a href="http://myspiltmilk.com/">MySpiltMilk.com</a>, was the guest editor of The Oxford American magazine’s <a href="http://www.oxfordamerican.org/articles/issues/31/">2012 Southern Music Issue</a>, which was entirely dedicated to all things Louisiana music. He also helped put together its accompanying album.</p><p>And Rawls tells WRKF’s Ashley Westerman that even though this new music comes from a younger generation and may sound a little different - it is still authentically Louisiana.</p><p></p><p> Thu, 18 Apr 2013 06:00:00 +0000 Ashley Westerman 8837 at http://wrkf.org New Artists, New Sound, Still Authentically Louisiana
