Like a hydro-electric Mothra rising from the ashes of a post-rock apocalypse, the music of Delicate Steve will literally make you the happiest person who has never lived. The band reconstructs influences as diverse as Yes, Vampire Weekend, The Fall, Ravi Shankur, 10 cc, The Orbital, Jann Hammer, the first half of OK Computer, the second act of The Wizard of Oz, and the final pages of Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom.
“A true child of his labelmeister, David Byrne, “Delicate” Steve Marion translates the felicities of West African guitar pop into an inventive instrumental hodgepodge. Nothing overly heavy or insipid to ponder here, unless you’ve got a problem with unalloyed joy.” — Village Voice
