For that pesky miss­ing link be­tween Spir­i­tu­al­ized, Sparkle­horse, Space­man 3, Pri­mal Scream, Je­sus & Mary Chain and Mog­wai, Ed­in­burgh’s Delta Main­line might just be the band that joins the dots. Of course, the lat­ter three out­fits share so­cio­cul­tural links with Delta Ma­chine, so per­haps there’s some­thing in the Scot­tish wa­ter that at­tracts like-minded souls. What­ever the rea­son, the mem­bers of Delta Main­line have not only learned from the best but have also adapted the re­sults into a fo­cused and seam­less whole. Tracks such as Mis­in­for­ma­tion, The Church Is Up for Sale, Floren­tine Regime and Dark En­ergy di­rectly echo the ti­tle of the band’s 2010 EP – In a World full of Mad­ness, the Sim­ple Joy of Melody Can Pull You Through. In other words, brace your­self: bliss this way comes. delta­main­
