Mo’ music, mo’ problems! And we get stuck on History from Below by Delta Spirit

Photography by Aarti1

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.

Or something.

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!

“Bushwick Blues”
“Salt in the wound”
“White Table”
“Ransom Man”
“Devil knows you’re dead”
“Golden state”
“St. Francis”
“Ballad of Vitaly”

    This is one of the best albums of the year so far. It is such a step up in quality from Ode To Sunshine. I can’t stop listening to it.
