I don't think I've been this excited about a band since my best friend discovered the Spice Girls in third grade. The other day while driving in the car I heard Delta Rae's "Bottom of the River" on WXPN and my whole soul was like "oh yeah." They're positive, "pop"-y (with a heart) and sort of have a folk sound similar to country music (with a brain ;) They also remind me of Glee a little bit.
I would highly recommend listening to their whole album here. And maybe come with me to see them at World Cafe Live in October?
Also, I love the cover art for their most recent album, "Carry the Fire."
Probably because it reminds me of my favorite Parisian vintage ad print for the French bicycle, Cycles Gladiator.
