Boise to be filled with Delta Spirit

Countless musicians have opined melodies in praise of California. However few songs do the Golden State justice like "California," the latest single from San Diego, Calif., natives Delta Spirit. The quintet combines regular rock tools with more unorthodox instruments like a trash can to emphasise its lyrics.

On the band's inaugural release, 2008's Ode to Sunshine, the creative waters of Delta Spirit resembled a meandering tributary filled with soft folk acoustics. However, with Delta Spirit's 2012 self-titled release, every aspect of its sound has taken on a more turbulent flow. Tracks like "Tellin' the Mind" and "Tear it Up" add a new emphasis on percussion without completely washing away that throwback Americana charm.

Delta Spirit also penned a tribute to the Gem State called "Idaho." Vocalist Matthew Vasquez sings lyrics like "Yeah we'll hang low / like they do it out in Idaho."
