March 13: Delta Spirit, self-titled

Their first full-length in '08 sounded like you'd expect an album produced in a cabin in the mountains to sound--rootsy Americana. But if the first track of their to-be-released-at-SXSW self-titled album is anything like the other tracks, the band has taken a lighter turn toward drum machines. We'll see if it works. -- Emily Van Zandt
