Southern Comfort

Another insightful review of Deltaphonic by Wilson Koewing in the Nola Defender. To listen to the band’s catalogue straight through feels like a backseat ride in an out-of-control burning muscle car through a backdrop of vast southern landscapes, occasionally stopping in this small town or that, to go inside a bar, or strip club, or seedy motel…

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…

See Red — Deltaphonic’s Blinding New Album

For the past month or so I’ve been listening to a preview of Delaphonic’s new album.

Kool Aid

My favourite song from my favourite band — highly recommend you seek them out if you are NOLA-based or just visiting. Andrew T. WeekesDeltaphonicmusicnew orleans

To get to the light you need to cross the shadow

If there’s one truth all outlaws know To get to the light you need to cross the shadow This phrase from Deltaphonic’s “Buckhorn Saloon” pretty much sums up the spirit animating this astonishing debut album entitled Texas, Texas. Without doubt it’s the Exile on Main Street for our time: dirty, earthy, gritty, soulful, sweaty, troubled, tongue-in-cheek…
