Editorial Reviews

Classic-era Rolling Stones. An amplified, rocking version of '60s protest folk. The raw spirit of indie rock. All of these comparisons have been made in attempts to describe Delta Spirit, the southern California 5-piece who might just be one of the most important new bands of the decade. Opening sold-out tours for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cold War Kids, and Dr. Dog, the band developed a riveting live show and gained a loyal following, earning them invites to national festivals like Austin City Limits, Noise Pop and Sasquatch.

Delta Spirit rocked my socks off when they opened for Matt Costa at the El Rey back in May. I like to think of them as a mash up between Bob Dylan and a grunge band. It's rootsy folk with a garage band edge. Take a listen to the soaring melody and the raucous rhythm of "Trashcan." Or the captivating melody and lyrics of "Strange Vine." And "People, Turn Around" is Dylan-esque with harmonicas and all. If you want to hear more, which I know you will, they released an EP that you can find on the internet (from which they transplanted "Streetwalker," which was not on the original release of Ode to Sunshine). It has a different sound than Ode to Sunshine, reminiscent of The Strokes. On KCRW's website, you can watch a live in studio performance. Matt Vasquez's voice is amazing. I hope this band sticks around for a long time.

This album is mind-boggling and should be winning awards! I saw Delta Spirit open for Matt Costa and expected a mediocre opening act. Instead, I was knocked off my feet right when they stepped onto stage. Their strong stage presence only adds to the fantastic music they create. From that night forward I honestly haven't taken their cd out of my player and they are definitely one of my top 5 favorite bands.

Not one song on this album misses its mark. Truly a band on its way to great things!

Energy is one thing Delta Spirit decidedly does not lack. From the opening campfire sing-a-long of "Tomorrow Goes Away" to the brisk bar band vibe of single "Trashcan" to singer Matthew Vasquez's unique, soulful howl, Delta Spirit is a band that cares about making impressively inspired music. Showing a fondness for American roots rock that wasn't apparent in the band members' previous noise punk work, Ode To Sunshine succeeds on Vasquez's unquestionable passion and the musicians' creative arrangements, and fails on those songs that don't play to those strengths.

"Trashcan," the first fully developed song on the album, is the sort of accomplishment that Delta Spirit spend the rest of the album trying to live up to. A lively rocker that propels itself on a ragtime piano melody and Vasquez's ragged voice, it wouldn't sound out of place blaring out of some desert saloon. The rhythm section is tight and the climactic choruses are what make rock great, all tinkly piano and a dirty guitar as Vasquez cathartically wails "my love is coming, I can barely hardly wait around." If you ever needed a more fitting definition of immediacy, you have one now.

Delta Spirit keeps the vigor up on following track "People C'mon," a track that relies on Vasquez's powerful vocals to support it even more so than "Trashcan", and he steps up to the plate admirably. The band shifts down a few gears on the slow strummer "House Built For Two," a song that succeeds on a beautiful piano melody and some of Vasquez's most heartfelt lyrics. You can practically picture a drunken, bearded piano man straight out of the Depression-era West belting this out to the equally drunk patrons.

I fell in love with a few songs from Delta Spirit on Youtube, so i bought their first full length album, "Ode to Sunshine" which has become one of my favorite albums of all time. (On the short list with a few albums from Pink Floyd, Foo Fighters, etc). Delta Spirit is both old-school and new school: While they dont seem to be virtuosos on their instruments, you wont miss it: the music they put together is wonderous and hits you right in the heart. Fresh musical ideas roll one after another on just about every song on this album (with the possible exception of the beatle-esque Tommorrow Goes Away, which is not my favorite Delta Spirit song). Every other song on this album is, to me, pure genius.

This album is also superbly recorded, revealing Matthew Vasquez voice in all its raw glory.

I come from Ireland, Ive been living in the States for 10 years. Im a bit snobby about the music I like. Basically I like UK and Irish bands, I feel the music has so much more depth in recent (20 years, apart from Pearl Jam and Nirvana) times than American music. So im on vacation in Ireland and I hear a song on the Radio, it immediately grabs me. Wanting to know who it is and also wanting to know if Shazam works abroad :) i click the listen button, it shoots back "People turn Around" by "Delta Spirit". Who? Never heard of them!, MUST be some UK band that Iam now so out of touch with that I would never hear cause I live in the States.....WRONG!...WRONG......WRONG!!!!!!
Turns out Delta Spirit are from California. So in my snobbery I cynically bought the album thinking thats probably the only decent song.........I stand here before you to say, I was a fool (in many ways)

How can I describe this album?....well in a few words....IT ENDS TOO SOON!
I cant remember an album that had so many instant YES moments. YES! thank good for great music moments!
This is an AMAZING Album that should be picked up straight away.

My prejudice is gone! AMAZING FROM BEGINNING TO END!
