This feature warrants a introductory statement: For those of you who actually read, you’re in for a treat. In an effort to boost FensePost comments, I’m giving you a chance to get the Delta Spirit CD and a physical copy of Ragged Magazine. Leave your comment over the weekend or early next week and I’ll choose a winner on next Friday. Simply let me know what you think of the song “Trashcan”, included below. It can be well thought out, or simply an I love it!
Delta Spirit (MySpace) was recently featured in Ragged Magazine (their site allows a download on a mini copy of the mag), but I was originally introduced to the band several months ago by Daytrotter. But I was confused—I thought it was The Duke Spirit (another group that surfaced through Daytrotter). I stand corrected; these two bands are very, very different.
Regarding the “competition”, I’ll go first. I like it—the intro piano has a bouncy soul that carries through in the vocals. “Trashcan” is the first single from Ode To Sunshine, out now on Rounder Recodrs, a label known more for roots and bluegrass rather than an indie powerhouse. But if the rest of Ode To Sunshine is anything like “Trashcan”, we all are in for a major treat (myself included).
