The Delta Saints are a rollicking, bourbon-kissed five-piece from Nashville, TN making a name for themselves on the strength of fevered live sets and holsters loaded with top-notch songs. The Saints’ debut album (after two well-received EPs), Death Letter Jubilee, was just self-released, and it’s a fiery electric revival brought to live with barroom Delta blues, drunken zeal and sharp songwriting.
Death Letter Jubilee is a winner through and through, but no tune exemplifies all the riches The Delta Saints have in spades (frontman Ben Ringel’s Southern punk howl, bluesy electric riffs, full-band handclaps, a tight and combustible rhythm section, sweat-soaked Dixie atmosphere, and riotous harmonica) quite like the stand-out title track. “Death Letter Jubilee” is a blissfully explosive rock revival that’s unmistakably current, even while The Saints’ ring in the mood of a debauched Prohibition-era street dance in their beloved Music City. The video for “Death Letter Jubilee” may not bring every ounce of The Delta Saints’ breathless stage presence to life, but it comes awfully damn close.
