Dawn Richard Captures the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans in All Their Glory

In the first few moments of Dawn Richard’s new album, New Breed, you are immediately transported back in time and space to New Orleans, where it all began for the singer-songwriter. Richard wistfully retells the stories of her Catholic school days, of craving sno-balls (a shaved ice confection that’s specific to the port city), of feasting on crawfish, another local delicacy.
