Delta Spirit // California

‘california’ is an excellent new track from brooklyn newb’s delta spirit, who perhaps cashed out their slide guitars for tape echoes and samplers on the move from west to east. on this swirling first peek from their forthcoming and third long player, the ex-golden staters march LOUD-quite-LOUD, evoking some of the format’s best: the pixies, weezer and the strokes. what really sets the quintet apart from the pack, though, is singer matt vasquez’s rootsy, full-throated croon. but, to be fair, the whole band in fact sounds as focused as ever on this moody, motorik-doowop hybrid you’ll be sure to cue up again and again.

delta spirit, which was produced by it-man chris coady (grizzly bear, tvotr, beach house) is set for a march 13 release via rounder/concord.
