Song of the Day #6

Who is Delta Spirit?  Your guess is as good as mine.  Though they’ve apparently toured with The Shins, tracking down their 2008 album Ode to Sunshine was relatively difficult.  All I know is that I’ve been humming (and singing in an obnoxious falsetto) this song, “Trashcan”, all day (it’s circulating the internets with some vigor, as well).  They remind me of one of my secret little favorites–The Snake The Cross The Crown (who, unfortunately, have shown very few signs of continuing existence in the past year and a half or so)–as well as other clangy, yelpy indie acts like Cold War Kids and Dear And The Headlights.  Have a listen.

CORRECTION:  It would seem they’ve also toured with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Dr. Dog, and Cold War Kids themselves, as well as having made two late-night television appearances, so perhaps they are not quite so obscure as I thought.  I have simply been oblivious to their existence.
