This feature warrants a introductory statement: For those of you who actually read, youâ€™re in for a treat. In an effort to boost FensePost comments, Iâ€™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 Iâ€™ll choose a winner on next Friday. Simply let me know what you think of the song â€œTrashcanâ€, 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 confusedâ€”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”, Iâ€™ll go first. I like itâ€”the intro piano has a bouncy soul that carries through in the vocals. â€œTrashcanâ€ 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 â€œTrashcanâ€, we all are in for a major treat (myself included).
