Delta Spirit have come a long way since the release of their debut Ode To Sunshine, a nostalgic, golden and sunny album that featured an old photograph of one member’s uncle as the cover.  Befitting their name, the band’s sound has evolved and this atmospheric number “Into the Darkness”, the ninth song off of their latest album Delta Spirit, is exceptionally produced with a great rhythmic groove and one of my favorite songs of 2012 thus far. Check it out.

Into The Darkness- Delta Spirit

Delta Spirit was released on March 13th, 2012 on Rounder Records. You can find the vinyl version on Insound  and the digital release on iTunes.
