    Default Delta Spirit - Ode To Sunshine

    About time I post a new find.
    This debut album has all the elements for a kick-ass Southern-rock revival. A full-throated frontman whose voice boasts a soulfulness too often missing from modern rock. Songs with a lighthearted, bar-rock vibe, honky-tonk piano riffs and a rock-steady rhythm section to anchor the music. Delta Spirit are a lot like fellow California-bred indie rock band Cold War Kids. The songs on Ode to Sunshine range from vaguely spiritual, the groove-heavy first single Trashcan, to the passable but forgettable Children. Considering how hook-heavy this album is, one might expect guitars would have a bigger presence, with more solos and riffing to match lead singer Mathew Vasquez's big voice. It is however the vocals and piano that do most of the work here. Sometimes the formula works (Streetwalker) and sometimes it doesn't (People Turn Around). Ode to Sunshine is a solid effort from this up and coming band, and if they're able to harness their Southern revival hymns with the bravado of '70s guitar rock, Delta Spirit will be a force to be reckoned with.
    One to watch.

    Bought this one as well. Jingly jangly sunshine music and maybe some repeated listens will help but so far it hasn't hooked me in.
