This is a slower music week. That's okay -- after Todd Snider and Frankenstein Brothers last week, I'm happy to catch my breath.

I reviewed The Waits Room EP last year. I enjoyed Delta Spirits' Americana vibe and the few raw edges that crept in. From what I've read, the band has continued to evolve, but I think they're definitely worth a listen. They have a chaotic energy that should come though nicely in a live show.

Portugal. The Man
In the studio, Portugal. The Man balance loose trippiness with focused post-rock. Their live shows favor the psychedelic a little more. When I saw them last year, the moody lighting and egoless emphasis on the music made for an intense experience.
