Get mild with the newest by Delafaye, an artist that I was previously wholly unaware of. This is singer-songwriter fare, relaxed and contemplative just as it should be, with chilled out guitar work and a rhythm section quietly helping the narrative along to its success without ever getting in the way. This is lazy Sunday music, when you’re kind of ambling about lost in thought. You can find analogs in contemporaneous Americana music stretching back to Nebraska era Springsteen, to modern work by bands like Father John Misty or Damien Rice. It’s that almost-but-not quite country vibe, like a musician on the edge of alt-country, with one foot in indie. Expect a lot of introversion and reverb soaked rumination, perfect for a rainy day.
Listen below and soak in it.
