One guitarist down since the release of their 2008 debut Ode To Sunshine they may be, but San Diego's Delta Spirit have retained an instinctive sense of rhythm and drive that makes everything they produce infectious on the ear. This makes perfect sense: four of their five members used to play drums for other bands. Stick-holder Brandon Young can tap on some trashcans a couple of times and the rest will follow suit.

Thanks for rating and commenting this one winitheju !

This is a honest and well executed modern indie rock album. There is no mistake to try history from below : it checks decent vocals, cool instrumentation, decent lyrics, good production, own personnality.

While I find that it comes at the wrong times where so much as been better done in indie rock, this is a safe choice when you have nothing to listen.
Beginning the process of re-listening to everything I enjoyed this decade. Forgot how good this one was..
