Chris Holmes (tour-mate of some British guy named Paul McCartney) and Brian Liesegang (co-founder of Filter, ex-roommate of Trent Reznor) aren’t interested in being lumped into any one musical category. They don’t want to hear about other artists sounding like Ashtar Command. And though I have no idea if either of those things is true, American Sunshine may have helped ensure that they never will be.
Delta Spirit To Release New Record, “History From Below”, June 8, 2010 – North American Tour Dates Confirmed
Rounder Records is excited to announce the release of the new Delta Spirit Record on June 8, 2010. Entitled History From Below, the record was produced by My Morning Jacket’s keyboardist Bo Koster and Eli Thomson. History From Below is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut, 2008’s Ode to Sunshine, which Spin hailed in its four-out-of-five-star review, saying, “This rousing debut impresses mightily,” while Filter called it “pure joy” and Jim Fusilli of the Wall Street Journal said, “I make no pretense of objectivity with Delta Spirit, I love these guys.”
