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...
