Not for the faint of heart, but what worth listening to is? Okay, we like our Delilah as much as the next guy, but there is just nothing like something that will shake your socks off. Frances Quinlan's volatile, voice-cracking plea gets the blood flowing. Her textured yowl lines up with the likes of Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield and Land Of Talk's Elizabeth Powell.

These guys will be playing in a few weeks at Dogfish Head's Analog-A-Go-Go, June 11-13, along with Built To Spill, Tall Tales, and Silver Lining. Yes please! We will be popping up with the airstream at the festival on June 13. If you are in the area, we hope to see you there!!
