Music Noir Americana

I’m so glad that Robert Fontenot in OffBeat has again unequivocally given the Deltas the thumbs up. I’ve been thinking about how to characterize this band and independently came up with the idea that Deltaphonic are the musical analog to film noir. This time of year I usually visit Baton Rouge but I’ll have to settle for listening to track 7 (Radio) off the album: get your copy here.

Their new backwoods mystik only augments their trademark smirking despair . . .

. . . dark Americana with history’s dust shaken off
