Re: “Video: Delta Rae succumbs to the Southern Lord, dances in a graveyard

Dance in the Graveyard is a beautiful and uplifting song that celebrates LIFE of the living and their ties to the spirit-life of deceased loved ones. Their video uniquely depicts how our loved ones live in our hearts and memories; IT IS MAGICAL, everyone should see this and react to this crass post.

As pointed out by @Shannon Wikle Sudderth, what Delta Rae has created is a very true and informative depiction of the real meaning of Dia de los Muertos. The IndyWeek post is insulting to this talented band from our backyard (Durham) and their stunning and moving new video. More importantly, IndyWeek's references to demonic pagan deity's and negative antichrist imagery imposed on the band confirm that this paper/blog has some personal agenda against this band and Christians the world over who celebrate their loved ones on this sacred holiday.

Re: “Re: Delta Rae; Immigration

Not that Nashville knows much about music or gets to hear as many bands as the geniuses at Durham's IndyWeek, but for anyone who wants to hear what a leading music review by The Nashville Music Guide has to say about Durham's own Delta Rae has to say, go the link below.

While The Indy's too bust eating it's own, the Democratic National Convention, VH1, MTV and others are paying high honors to this talented hard working group from right here! My hats off to Delta Rae and all the other Triangle area musicians pushing hard to make a career of the art of music!

Re: “Delta Rae's Carry the Fire

Sorry, that is Catherine Fuentes of RollingStone who said of DELTA RAE:

"Rich four-part harmonies fill the album, especially evident on lush tracks like "If I Loved You" and "Morning Comes." The anthemic "Bottom of the River" is a ground-rattling fixture of the band's energetic live set, and a lively example of their Southern roots."

RollingStone now they know music!

Re: “Delta Rae's Carry the Fire

@Son.Of.Clarios re: "What I'm saying"
Is a whole lot of nothing, 8 paragraphs, really! Like Mr. Grayson, so many words, so little to say; maybe you two are the same?

If you haven't heard Delta Rae you should. Their CD is VERY good, like FM's Rumors, just put it on repeat and enjoy. As for professional music critics, that's anyone with an objective opinion. Mr. Grayson lacks objectivity and his review of Delta Rae was perverted and suspiciously personal. No credibility at all!

Want professional? Billboard's Catherine Fuentes said of Delta Rae:
"Rich four-part harmonies fill the album, especially evident on lush tracks like "If I Loved You" and "Morning Comes." The anthemic "Bottom of the River" is a ground-rattling fixture of the band's energetic live set, and a lively example of their Southern roots."

Re: “Delta Rae's Carry the Fire

After all this controversy I went to see Delta Rae for myself at the Cat Cradle last Saturday. The opening bands were not so good and I was thinking of leaving. But I stayed for one Delta Rae song and was absolutely floored! Soon they will be playing at Madison Square Garden; they were huge, energetic and had strings and horns, STRINGS AND HORNS! Such a big layered sound with 4 powerful lead vocalists that blend magically. Mr. Grayson, I completely disagree with your assessment. Their CD lacks one thing however, huge applause after each song like was heard at the Cats Cradle! Something big is cooking in Carolina!
