Delicate Steve

I fell in love with this album after scanning Pitchfork’s review of it and then looking for it online.

In Laura Snapes’ review of Delicate Steve’s Positive Force, she name-checks some of my favorite bands (Yeasayer and Fang Island) and mentions that Delicate Steve is on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop Records. I was intrigued at this point, so, with Google’s help, I found Delicate Steve’s bandcamp page. My year-old son Zeke and I jammed out to the album this morning, and I fell more and more in love with Delicate Steve’s lyrical guitar playing. The album cruises nicely between a Ratatat-style electro-guitar and a more laid back, Citay-style psychedelic ramble. I bought it on the spot.
