Delta Spirit - Into The Wide

Brooklyn-via-San Diego rockers Delta Spirit have a new album called Into The Wide set to arrive just as summer starts bleeding into fall. Although the record was written and recorded in a ragged, rat-infested studio the band rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy, new single “Live On” finds them sounding as bright and upbeat as ever, no doubt thanks in part to the involvement of producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Washed Out). Together they’ve crafted a sleek metropolitan roots rock that exists in the same sonic universe as Ryan Adams or the Gaslight Anthem (before they went butt-rock). “Live On” shimmers with life and surges with urgency, and its message of perseverance is utilitarian enough to apply to whatever life’s throwing at you. Pump your fist to it below.

Into The Wide is out 9/9 on Dualtone. Pre-order it here.

  1. Good song. These guys are a fairly underrated band. They’re not revolutionizing anything with their albums, but they put out solid stuff pretty consistently. They’re better than plenty of lesser bands that get more attention, but that’s how it goes…

  2. Theyre one of those bands where if they just keep plugging away and putting nose to the grindstone and put out good albums and great live shows, they can find themselves in a few years with several albums on the shelves and some longevity and hopefully some well-deserved acclaim. Hope it happens.
