The Delta Sweete

March 1, 1968

Country-Pop

With the recent release of Mercury Rev's tribute to Delta Sweete, it's the perfect time to revisit the original. Featuring covers of songs Bobbie Gentry grew up with as well as originals inspired by her Mississippi childhood, her 1968 debut album's mix of country, folk, blues and soul expands on the unforgettable sound she created with "Ode to Billie Joe."

1991

Alternative Pop/Rock

This 1990 album, originally released on indie stalwart Sub Pop, established the basic template for Billy Childish's oeuvre for the next decade to come: simple garage riffage, snotty, smart lyrics, and a tinny, devil-may-care production that underscores the casual desperation behind the music.
