[photogallerylink id=99602 align=left]We previewed this song last week during New Music Thursday. For those of you who do not know Delta Spirit, they hail from San Diego and are a hybrid of rock and southern soul. They played a scorching set at Lollapalooza last summer and are set to release their third LP in just over a month. The group incorporates unconventional instruments (such as trash cans lids and orchestral bass drums), the mulch-instrumentalism of the members and the vocal delivery and religiously/spiritually-themed lyrics of singer Matt Vasquez.

Download “California,” the lead track from Delta Spirit’s forthcoming self titled disc:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The self-titled disc will arrive on March 13 via Rounder/Concord. It was produced by Chris Coady at Dreamland Recording Studios – a converted church built in 1896.
