    Made a special effort to come vote against this after running away from it in a local bookstore. My God ... hard to imagine someone making worse music without trying. Bafflin

  1. The ex-Noise Ratchet founders shift to more rootsy territory with their new band, yielding impressive results.
  2. Despite Delta Spirit’s anarchic (i.e., creatively opportunistic) sampling of everything from cold war folk to the Cold War Kids, when the band members hit their stride--as on the rumbling, locomotive grooves of piano-stung epic Americana on 'Trashcan'--Sunshine becomes nothing less than an ode to musical joy.
  3. Catchy and pleasant but ultimately flawed, Sunshine is a solid effort from this up-and-coming band, and if they're able to harness their Southern revival hymns with the bravado of '70s guitar rock, Delta Spirit will be a force to be reckoned with.
