Product Notes

Entitled in Haitian Kreyol, "S'AC PASSÉ?" is a greeting meaning "What's going on?" to which the traditional response is "N'ap Boule!", or, our fire is burning. As the title may suggest S'AC PASSÉ? finds the band blending lead vocalist's Nadïne LaFond's Haitian Kreyol with English and mixing instrumentation such as the American jazz & rock staples of Hammond B3 & electric guitar, with various world instruments. Guitarist/co-songwriter Brian Herkert notes "This album represents a sort of a musical reverse migration. It starts with the current sounds of rock and hip-hop, travels to the Gulf states with funk and early American blues, from there moves to the Caribbean with Haitian Kreyol and the rhythms of reggae and ska and finally ends up back in Africa via Nadine's African vocal styles and the use of instrumentation such as the hindehoo, udu and kalimba." S'AC PASSÉ? is produced by Swampadelica and J. Kahrs and recorded at Trey Anastasio's Vermont based studio, "The Barn" as well as the band members' home studios. Good things are happening all around for the band at the time of this release. Nadïne LaFond is currently singing in the studio with Phish bassist Mike Gordon. Nadïne sang on moe.'s new album, "Sticks & Stones", and recently sang with the band on tour (including an appearance on Mountain Stage with moe. And Ani DiFranco). With guests such as the legendary Bernie Worrell (P-Funk, Talking Heads keyboardist) and Railroad Earth's Andy Goessling showing up and sitting in with Swampadelica at their live shows, it is evident that Swampadelica's fire is burning. Founding member Damian Calcagne surfaced from the Northwestern NJ scene that spawned Railroad Earth. Damian toured as keyboardist with RRE frontman Todd Sheaffer in RRE's predecessor From Good Homes. Damian, Nadïne, Brian Herkert and bassist Paul Kuzik form the song writing team that has created Swampadelica's signature style that is showcased on S'AC PASSÉ?. These four friends have developed a dialogue that is the center of Swampadelica's musical voice. The final piece of the puzzle fell into place with the recent addition of it's newest member, Bill Rust, on drums, percussion and electronics. Rust is best known for his percussion & sound design work with Curt Smith of Tears for Fears, Saturday Night Live, Brian Transeau (B.T.), & UK Trance DJ Sasha.
