Biography

When it came time to record Delta Spirit’s third album, the band members knew one thing: It was time to shake off the stylistic labels that have shadowed them since they formed in San Diego, CA, in 2005. Though lyricists Matt Vasquez and Kelly Winrich were grateful for the warm reviews that their previous albums Ode To Sunshine (2008) and History From Below (2010) received, they were ...

Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the third album from the San Diego-based band. When it came time to record this album, the band members knew one thing: It was time to shake off the stylistic labels that have shadowed them since they formed in San Diego, CA, in 2005. The band were perplexed at being called rootsy Americana or twangy folk. In their eyes, Delta Spirit has always been a thoroughly modern rock band, and, with their self-titled new album, they set out to prove it. This project finds the quintet firing on all cylinders -- road-tested and armed with the breakthrough album of their career. Years of non-stop touring has been distilled into a sound this band can truly call their own, and with the help of producer Chris Coady (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), tracks like the lead single, California, and the infectious Otherside will help to bring Delta Spirit the wider audience they so clearly deserve.

Customer Reviews

At first, it's kind of jarring... in a good way.
William F. Homan
This album reminds me a lot of the Secret Machines and My Morning Jacket and if you know who these groups are then you know that's really saying something.
Chasen M
If I listen hard I can hear the band I fell in love with but it's not worth it.

It was a moment straight out of High Fidelity where John Cuscak turns on his customers to the Beta Band Three EPs; the clerks at my local Seattle vinyl haunt put on the self-titled new album by Delta Spirit. Who are they? I have no idea. All I can say is... WOW. This is a brassy, ambitious, euphoric, head spinning, toe tapping, nut busting, bra tossing, beer swilling, guitar smashing work of genius. There's a line in "The Bends" where Thom Yorke sings about "waiting for something to happen." That describes my feeling about the state of rock and roll in 2012. Beyond 2 masterpieces by Against Me!, nothing has quite excited me about real rock and freaking roll in some time. All of my favorite bands (Foo Fighters, Dropkick Murphys, Gogol Bordello, Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid) have put out decent albums lately - but nothing that gets the heart pounding and the finger tapping the repeat button. Delta Spirit not only demands attention - it rewards it with lyrical depth and exquisite production. Every track crackles with urgency. This album entwines the dark textures and southern charm of My Morning Jacket's Evil Urges, the fearless ambition of Arcade Fire's Funeral, the fury of Against Me's New Wave, the heartbreak and sonic beauty of The Airborne Toxic Event, the grandiose balls of the Smashing Pumpkins' Gish, the swagger of The Heavy and the adrenaline rush of Radiohead's The Bends into a (kid you not, this is what it feels like) epic rollercoaster hayride under the big night sky.

That's right. The best ROCK album of the year belongs to Delta Spirit. I loved their last album "History From Below, but in my opinion it tended to drag toward the end. This is not the case with their third and self-titled album. There seems to be a re-newed urgency to this album and quite frankly it has a much harder sound with a sonic edge. At first, it's kind of jarring... in a good way. In a way that makes you wants to turn it up. There are many standouts on this album: Tear It Up, California, Idaho, Otherside and Money Saves. Hell, they are all great tracks. This album could possibly propel them to a much wider audience. Do yourself a favor and buy this record. See them live if you can and before they get huge. They are exciting to see.

I've given this days of listening time so I can say I gave it a chance because I've loved them so much. History from Below grew on me over time as long as I skipped Bushwick Blues and stuck to the EP version. This album will not grow on me and is definitely enough to knock Delta Spirit down on my list. For a few years they've been my favorite band; the autographed Ode to Sunshine vinyl on my wall is one of my prized possessions but this commercial album polishes the Spirit right out of them. Matt's AMAZING voice is watered down, there's no harmonica or unique instrumentation, there's no earthy feel, there's no urgency to these songs and there's no uniqueness to set it apart from the rest. If I listen hard I can hear the band I fell in love with but it's not worth it. I certainly wouldn't give it much thought had this been my introduction. I don't know how they can go from the fantastic Waits Room EP to this vanilla release. It's a homogeneous rock album that's perfect for consumption, I'm sure it will garner new fans; maybe those will outnumber the ones they disappoint and it will be profitable. Luckily I've not yet opened the vinyl so I should be able to exchange it.

I don't mind that DS have attempted to change their sound to a more Rock/Pop
style to avoid being put in boxes by critics, but a band should know it's
strengths. What they have done with their move from Folk/Rock to "Indie"/Pop
is throw out the strongest part of their music, the lyrical content. There
are a few really good songs on this album but the bulk seem to be written by
a different person than their first two CDs-someone that knows how to string together a bunch of boring rock cliches. I will probably not buy another album
by this band until they restore the quality of the songwriting. As someone
who has turned a lot of people on to their first albums I find this a huge
embarrassment,what the hell were they not thinking. If you want the "best
rock album of the year" so far I suggest the Cowboy Junkies "Singing in My Meadow" or Chuck Prophet's "Temple Beautiful".

Fresh, updated, more hip sound on this album which I find deeply enjoyable. I struggle to describe it but might compare it to current Phoenix or even classic INXS, but neither of those bands quite do justice to what Delta Spirit is kicking out on this album. This album is getting dissed by a lot of critics but I think it shows the same songwriting chops, group vocals, and quitar-playing as their previous albums with slicker production, compelling beats, and a more "indie-dance" sound to it; the band is growing and experimenting. That's a great thing. "California" and "Tear It Up" are great songs, and I find something about "Money Saves" compelling.

What happened? Everything was going good for Delta Spirit. They were a legit force of alt-rock/folk with jangly rockers, bar band grit, honest-bare-bones songwriting, and the chops to back it all up. Here we get their "mission statement" which comes off as little more than a ploy for modern rock radio with hopes of being pumped at your run-of-the-mill teen mall spots a la Kings of Leon's last 3 efforts, rather than exercising the soulfulness and earnestness that made their first 2 releases and EP great.

I totally agree with themusiclantern on his review. Not to state this album is completely void of some good moments, I'm sure they are there, but as a whole its a hard listen when knowing, loving and preferring their previous accomplishments. Here's hoping they find their footing again in the future and never record a song like "Telling the Mind" again.
