Review: Delta Spirit – Delta Spirit

Delta Spirit goes hard in their third full–length effort. The Americana–influenced rock band trades in their polished and completely likeable indie sound for a grittier, fuller resonance. At first, Delta Spirit features upbeat rhythms and roaring guitars, but about halfway through, the album takes on a slightly darker tone (“Time Bomb” stands out as particularly moody). Vocalist Matt Vasquez masterfully ties all the tracks together with his soulful twang, creating a cohesive sonic experience. It’s no coincidence that this album is self–titled — Delta Spirit has found their voice and they’re singing out loud and clear.

2.5/5 Stars

1st track is awesome; lyrics on home are the closest they come to the timeless poetry they unveil on earlier efforts. The kids will like it, a bit more mindless, electric and up tempo.
