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.”

SONG: Dr. Dog

“Someday”

This tune is one that really shows how versatile Dr. Dog is as a band. It’s always difficult for me to describe them to people. Sure I can say Beatlesque harmonies…but listen to how this song begins – sounds like Radiohead for the first few seconds before the beat sets in and makes you think you’re about to hear a hip hop track. But nope, it’s just Dr. Dog. I’m beyond excited to see them live (with DELTA SPIRIT!) on 9/19 at Lupo’s in Providence.

LIVE: The Slip


I was delighted to witness The Slip play a post Thanksgiving show at Lupo’s in Providence, RI. These guys really impressed me. They’ve got such a full sound for a trio. Brad Barr is incredibly talented on the guitar, taking monster solos and adding dynamic effects to the mix with pedals and loops. His brother Andrew knocked me out on the drums. I’ve never seen anyone drum as fast as he did…and it seemed so effortless. Marc Friedman held it all down on the bass…and at times would play rhythm guitar while keeping a bass line with his feet!

The Slip is a rock band no doubt, but they often take the music to a dream-like place. I definitely found myself closing my eyes and really feeling the music…no psychedelics needed! The three seem to work so well together, allowing tempo and key changes to happen smoothly within and between songs. Marco Benevento opened the show and sat in during a few tunes, adding some serious keys into the mix. The trading between Marco and Brad during one jam was a highlight of the night for me. Towards the end of the evening, they played a killer intro into “Children Of December”, with everyone singing along. They closed with a tight rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Heartbreaker” which left everyone cheering for more. Lupo’s is a great venue, but it’s not fun getting pushed out the door at 10pm to allow the dance party to commence. Despite that, I had a blast, and I can’t wait to see these guys again.
