Support 88Nine And This Artist:
"The debut album from the Reverend John DeLore, "Ode to an American Urn" is a 13-song tour de force! The poet-like attention to lyrics is underscored by melodies and arrangements whose breadth of musical dynamics is rare in modern albums.
"Ode to an American Urn" moves deftly from bombastic, blues-tinged rock, to songs with big, sprawling spaces for the listener to explore, to songs filled with breath and intimacy. The expansiveness of the album works because "American Urn" also has what other modern albums lack: a common thread of intention connecting the songs, a common heart.
"Truly a collection of Indie-Rock-Americana gems. Repeat listens are encouraged!!!" --csl
