Delta Spirit: “Trashcan”

Delta Spirit started out literally banging on trashcans. The band popped up in 2008 with the song “Trashcan,” built around a simple percussive riff that the members drunkenly bashed out one night. Delta Spirit has since gotten grander in sound and scope, but there’s still something Southern about their music. Despite hailing from California–and mostly based in Brooklyn these days–the group is more beer joint than beach party. Live at the Four Seasons last week, frontman Matt Vasquez (who recently moved back to Austin, his childhood roots) introduced a honky-tonk version of “Trashcan.” Download it and watch video of their performance below.
