New Multitudes

    'New Multitudes' is an intimate interpretation of American icon and musical legend Woody Guthrie’s previously unrecorded lyrics from a dream team of Americana torchbearers: Jay Farrar (Son Volt), Will Johnson (Centro-matic), Anders Parker (Varnaline), and Yim Yames (My Morning Jacket).

    What makes this album such a rarity in today’s music world is the allowance of the songs’ infectious simplicity to stand alone in all their glory. In doing so, Farrar, Johnson, Parker, and Yames have paid the greatest compliment to Woody Guthrie and the collaborative spirit he so greatly embodied.

    This is an album which seamlessly converges the sepia-toned essence of the time honored past with the risks needed to forge the future.

      When it came time to record Delta Spirit’s third album, the band members knew one thing: It was time to shake off the stylistic labels that have shadowed them since they formed in San Diego, CA, in 2005. In their eyes, Delta Spirit has always been a thoroughly modern rock band, and, with their self-titled new album, they set out to prove it. To help them realize their vision, Delta Spirit recruited producer Chris Coady who has worked with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Beach House, and Smith Westerns, among others.

      Classic-era Rolling Stones. An amplified, rocking version of 60s protest folk. The raw spirit of indie rock. The soulful passion of the Violent Femmes and The Waterboys. All of these comparisons have been made in attempts to describe Southern California 5-piece Delta Spirit. Each description contains elements of the truth, but the real answer to the question 'Who is Delta Spirit?' lies within "Ode To Sunshine", the band's captivating debut. The group's DIY ethic shines throughout the album, with songs honed razor-sharp over a year of non-stop touring across America.

      Another artist that says 'Thank you Lord for the Coen brothers'.

"Old Ties" is Blake at his best, finger pickin' his way through slew of jaw-dropping guitar set pieces and easy-on-the-ear folk roots standards.
