On September 9th, Delta Spirit will release Into the Wide (Amazon), an album the band wrote in a “flood-ruined, cave-like, rat-colonized room in Brooklyn,” press materials note. The band, originally from Southern California but now living in Brooklyn, spent more than a year writing together in the windowless studio they rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy. They’ll play three consecutive nights in NYC just a few weeks after the album releases – September 30th at the Mercury Lounge (Sold Out), October 1st at the Bowery Ballroom and October 2nd at The Music Hall of Williamsburg.
The album’s second track and first single, “From Now On,” has been getting a fair amount of attention, but I’m a bigger fan of the song that follows it, “Live On.” It’s far from grassy and a bit poppy for the gcb, but I dig it and love the backstory. Looking forward to this one.
