I got 99 problems but the leaks ain’t one. The overflowing of leaking music continues unabated, making it a challenge to determine where to go next! Do you go with the hot & hyped? Or do you go with the obscure & unknown? Do you consult your family Ouija board?
The answer, of course, is no. Who cares what’s on the hot lists, I’m not trying to score indie-points with the unknown, and Ouija boards are Satanic and I plan to follow the yellow brick road to Heaven and meet the Willy Wonka in the skydome of dreams through a pearly gate of Peter Pumpkinhead.
No. I go to my go-to source when torn & confused in my life-directioning. My life coach Nintendo Kitteh.
Say it with me, “awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!”
Okay, confession. I just really wanted to post that photo I found on Dlisted. It’s just soooo cute. Who’s a cutie? You’re a cutie!! Who’s got a DS??? You got a DS!!! Whoozacueseewoozee??? Yoozacueseewoozee!!!!
Sorry about that. Um, where was we? Oh yeah. So, yeah, I follow my heart & ears, etc, etc. Whatever it was that led me here, here we are, and it’s History from Below by Delta Spirit where we be!!!
Not sure why this beat out Band Of Horses & whatnot, but it did. It’s actually pretty straightforward americana-meets-soul-meets-modern-indie and the guy sounds a bit like Gordon Gano from Violent Femmes. Well, that describes it. That was easy and maybe that’s what got me, the ease at which I could slip this on and enjoy, all tailor-made for me and shit. I’m all about my anytime/anywhere music and after the complex Broken Social Scenes & Frog Eyes and the emotable National, I think Delta Spirit is that keep-it-real palette cleanser I was needing.
Consider this palette… REFRESHED!
