[SKELETON SOUL] With Sung Inside a House, Death Songs’ Nick Delffs has finally managed to bring the frolicsome nature of his live work into the studio. In doing so, he’s managed to inject the band’s new 11-song collection with generous amounts of soul. That “soul” takes on different connotations throughout the album. There’s the influence of actual soul music that seeps through “Giving,” a slow-burning, horn-accented waltz. Opening track “Overdose” and the band’s version of Dick Blakeslee’s anthemic “Passing Through” follow suit, bursting out of the speakers like a Motown 45. The other side of the coin is the mood that pervades Delffs’ vocals, and the instrumental performances from him and his bandmates. Even in the form of a piano ballad or jumpy folk pop, Sung is imbued with a spirit that can be joyful or ruminative, and occasionally—as with the loving ode to his “New Son”—a delightful combination of the two.
