See Red: New Deltaphonic

Having spent the day previewing Deltaphonic’s forthcoming release See Red I’m pleased to report that they are very much on form. Given that their last album Texas, Texas set the bar so high, one had to wonder if they could ever approximate that again (this was the bind that Television found themselves in after Marquee Moon). See Red is still growing on me: I’ll report in more detail once the album has been officially released and I’ve “test driven” the album both sober and “under the influence” :) Speaking of which, I’d urge you to catch them at DBA for the launch — with some 17 gigs leading up to DBA they are going to be blindingly good. One of the greatest, if not THE greatest live musical night of my life, was seeing them absolutely shred the audience at the Apple Barrel last summer.
