Our neighbors from Belmont, the Delta Saints, have created a distinctly Southern debut album. Death Letter Jubilee is a rock album soaked in moonshine and served at some dimly lit Nashville bar. The Delta Saints’ rollicking album results directly in foot tapping and head-nodding thanks to Ben Ringel’s soulful vocals and Dylan Fitch’s driving guitar. Death Letter Jubilee should be blasted out of a Mardi Gras float, especially “Death Letter Jubilee” and “Boogie.” The thumping Southern beats are cut by the haunting “Out to Sea” (think The Avett Brothers) and “River” (think a 1930s Mississippi porch front). A little swampy, a little bluesy, and definitely soulful. -Hillary Good 4/11/2013
