delta blues

For me, I think it’s important to give all kinds of music a shot. Maamf might seem to push electro/indie-dance down your throat, but there is also this love of great local singer-songwiters, blues+roots, funk and…

Australia has a fair few ‘blues rock’ style bands. Dudes like Wolfmother (who I’m not that much of a fan of), The Mess Hall (I like), and Tame Impala (yeah…they’re ok) push this skuzzed out kinda sound.

A new band that brings that same kind of sound is The Delta Riggs. These guys are out of the Blue Mountains up there in NSW and they’ve got their debut EP coming out on March 26th. The EP is self-titled and features the track Soul Train, which you grab for free just below. The dudes have also set up their own label (Rah Rah Radio), the EP and a 7″ companion single of Soul Train (both of which you can grab March 26th), and a NSW tour (Dates below).
