Download Den: Delta Spirit, JEFF the Brotherhood, and FIDLAR Tour Sampler

Delta Spirit

One of the best tours this fall is guaranteed to the three-headed, rock and roll juggernaut of Delta Spirit, JEFF the Brotherhood and FIDLAR. In full disclosure, Delta Spirit is one of my favorite bands, so I’m more than a little biased about this. Every set the Brooklyn-via-Southern California rockers play goes down as a whirlwind blast of energetic rock and roll propelled on the strength of Matt Vasquez’s songwriting.

All three bands are touring in support of new material. Delta Spirit released their excellent, third album, titled Delta Spirit, back in March. JEFF the Brotherhood, the duo comprised of Nashville’s Ortall brothers, released their damn good, Dan Auerbach-produced, seventh album, Hypnotic Nights, in July. Last week, FIDLAR put out a new EP, titled Shit We Recorded in Our Bedroom, which you can download for free.

In honor of the tour, which kicks off tonight in Placerville, CA, you can download a free, 5-track tour sampler with contributions from all three bands. It’s a great primer for the sounds of each act. At the very least, Delta Spirit’s live versions of “White Table” and a cover of The Zombies’ “She’s Not There” are definitely worth the seconds it’ll take to download this bad boy.

Delta Spirit will also be doing a live taping for ACL Live on November 2. You can win free passes to the taping by registering here by October 31 at 9:00am.
Tickets for all dates are on sale now. If you happen to be heading to the Cincinnati date at Bogart’s, I hope to see you there. Get a taste of what to expect with the following clip of Delta Spirit’s recent performance of “Trashcan” at this year’s Austin City Limits Festival.
