SONG: Delta Spirit

“Money Saves”

I’m not normally they type to listen to LOUD music, but lately I’ve really loved BLASTING the volume on certain songs. This track in particular sounds brilliant when the speakers are nearly breaking in my car :)) I cannot stop listening! Crank it!:

LYRICS: Delta Spirit

“Home”

I’ve been on a major Delta Spirit binge lately (again). This track on their latest self-titled release has been really hitting me hard lately. It’s a gorgeous tune with some really heartfelt lyrics…

“Drug in by the rain, all the crooked ways I think
A wish as in a mood to die
But life, it is good, no matter how far you sink
Sometimes sitting still is better than to drop
When you’re down in a hole
When your heart’s weighed down like gold
There is a hand that can reach you there”

I decided to keep the list short, and these 10 albums were clear standouts.

FALL TUNES

So, lately I’ve been stuck musically. I haven’t really been seeking out new music or really opening myself up to it and I suppose I could use being busy as an excuse. I’ve been basically listening to the same few albums again and again. But it’s not necessarily a bad thing! These albums have some seriously stunning tracks on them. Here are a few that maybe I’ve posted before, but I cannot get enough of:

Bahamas – “Lost In The Light”
This gorgeous song floors me every time. New video:

~~~

The Tallest Man On Earth – “Wind and Walls”
Every track on There’s No Leaving Now is quite beautiful:

~~~

Feist – “Graveyard”
Can’t believe the beginning of this tune and the end are actually in the same song:

~~~

Delta Spirit – “Ransom Man”
Sometimes when you listen to an album long enough, the songs you used to skip become your favorites:

~~~

Wilco – “One Sunday Morning”
I’ve found that this 12-minute final track on The Whole Love is perfect for an up island drive:

LYRICS: Delta Spirit

“Yamaha”

This track is hiding at the very end of Delta Spirit’s latest self-titled album. It’s honestly been making me cry lately…with it’s gorgeous, lush sound and words that I think really make you FEEL the emotion. Tomorrow night I’ll see Delta Spirit LIVE with Dr. Dog at Lupo’s…

“So cold I know you can’t believe it
Sometimes you gotta face the feeling
When you don’t care if you get up again
There’s a thousand things I will not understand
How you’re dealing with the hell I put you through
If I had my way I’d be right there next to you
There’s certain things in life you cannot change
There’s certain things…
I hope you know I care.”

“Salt in the Wound”

My Delta Spirit obsession has gotten out of hand this summer. I actually forced myself to take the CDs out of my car and listen to something else yesterday…yet today I still find myself thinking about their songs…and the beautiful words to this particular tune:

“now with my heart wide open
I listen to the wind just for a word
sure I know it’s futile
but that’s all I have in this world
to look
down from the hill
and howl
at the moon
all the tears I cried never salted any wound
well the earth
is so tender and cruel
if you’re not there it’s still so beautiful”
