Originally issued in 2010, San Diego-bred five-piece Delta Spirit's second full-length, History From Below was produced by My Morning Jacket’s keyboardist Bo Koster and Eli Thomson and followed up the band’s critically acclaimed debut, 2008’s Ode to Sunshine. The 11-track effort was captured at Prairie Sun Studio C in Cotati, CA, the same place Tom Waits has recorded almost exclusively since 1991.
History From Below is brimming with incredibly deep and moving songs that are alternately grand and explosive, rock and rustic, always eloquent and melodic. It has a powerful energy that radiates musically, lyrically and vocally from the moment you hit play as it finally captures the uncontainable spirit the band exudes on stage.
"Led by frontman Matt Vazquez’s ramshackle voice and soulful cries, the San Diego ensemble revels in songs of love and longing—and the blurry emotions that fall in between. Vazquez surveys the reasons behind pining, desperation, and frustration, tossing in existential questions all the while assuming the bruised disposition of someone broken but not defeated."
--Bob Gendron, TONE Audio, Issue 29
