Delta Spirit is offering up a new EP entitled The Waits Room. The EP was named from a special room at Prairie Studios in Cotati, CA called the “Waits Room” which was a former closet that Tom Waits converted for recording. The EP has acoustic versions “Bushwick Blues” and “Devil Knows You’re Dead,” which appeared on their recent album History For Below. They also recorded a bluesy, stripped down version of “John Henry,” which is absolutely fantastic, it’s dirty and grimy and just awfully awesome to listen to.
New songs include the bluegrass folk track “The Flood,” and “My Dream,” and are both fantastic. The new versions of these songs and the new tracks have a subtle, intimate, feel.
At $3.99 you can not go wrong here, if you liked History From Below, and I did (alot), you are going to find a lot to love about this EP.
