Delicate Steve – “Wondervisions”

Hey all! My first review for the Donnybrook Writing Academy is of Wondervisions, the debut album by Delicate Steve, and it is now up on the site. Here’s a snippet:

“Delicate Steve entered my radar last October when they played a show in a little outdoor amphitheater at Middlebury College, triple-billed with Beach Fossils and an unfortunate opening band that will remain unnamed. After that first band finished their shambling mess of a set, Steve Marion and his four bandmates, like a special envoy sent to remind us what a tight live act sounds like, exploded into fifth gear with their clamoring percussion and Marion’s soon-to-be-trademark sugar-rush guitar lines. Many of us were a little surprised when the songs ended up including no vocals, but this didn’t change the fact that most of the crowd was on their feet, dancing in front of the stage, within minutes.”

The rest of the review is up right here.
