DOWNLOAD: Delta Spirit - Bushwick Blues (MP3)

History From Below

San Diego's Delta Spirit are set to release their sophomore album History From Below via Rounder Records on June 8th. Already one of my favorite albums of the year, I couldn't be happier that they let me debut track number two, "Bushwick Blues" on, appropriately, "Brooklyn Vegan". Like many of their soulful indie-Americana songs, "Bushwick Blues" tells a moving story of love and loss. More specifically it tell the story of a girl, a fellow singer-songwriter even, that the California band's front-man Matthew Vasquez fell in love with right here in Brooklyn (Bushwick). Check it out above.

Tickets are still on sale for Delta Spirit's upcoming shows at Bowery Ballroom on June 30th and Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 1st. More dates & MG&V info in a previous post. Some videos of the band performing songs from the new album, with its tracklist, below...

"Bushwick Blues"

it's about blue-bloods 'slumming it' while they 'find themselves' before they 'settle down' in 'the slope'

Yeah, seriously. Are these people fucking idiots? Try being born and raised in Bushwick instead of whatever suburb they were from

They are from the rich suburbs of North County San Diego.

A hard hard life, I am sure

I really hope "Vivian" is a Nerf Herder cover.

any negative comment is from someone extremely jealous. You lack faith whithin yourself and god, you should discover yourself before grounding out at first base. Now my real comment, this song is great but I won't be shocked if i hear something better then this. Great band delta spirit

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
