Delta Spirit - ROUNDER
FILTER Grade: 85%
By Andrea Bussell on March 23, 2012
On its self-titled third album, San Diego quintet Delta Spirit takes the vibrant energy of its rousing rock to a whole other level. Ascendant four-part harmonies on top of drum-machine samples and soaring guitars make for an earnest, ragged attack that’s at once familiar and timeless. There’s some Springsteen in the sing-along choruses, some Neil Young in the quieter moments. If these are supposed to be feel-good songs, they sure do work just fine.
