Label: New Rounder
The boys of Delta Spirit seem to be reinventing themselves on album No. 3, down to the simple, eponymous title. They've left the rambunctious, trash-can-banging rock of their first two releases back at the pub, moving on to atmospheric classic rock twice their age -- maybe to match the weathered howls of vocalist Matthew Vasquez. "California" shuffles along like a Lindsey Buckingham tune; "Otherside" also feels Fleetwood Mac-indebted. "Home" is a ballad of Mellencamp proportions, while "Time Bomb" and "Money Saves" sound like Arcade Fire at their most Springsteenian.
