Polyphonic Spree's 'Salvage Enterprise' Album Release: A Rising-From-The-Ashes Record You Can't Miss

Updated: Apr 17




The Polyphonic Spree's new album, 'Salvage Enterprise,' has finally hit the airwaves, and it's definitely worth all the hype. The album's focus track, "Give Me Everything (Section 46)," has been compared to Simon & Garfunkel's grand productions, according to The Shepherd Express. Led by the band's frontman and visionary, Tim DeLaughter, this album is their first body of original compositions in almost a decade. DeLaughter describes it as a 'rising-from-the-ashes' record and his most vulnerable work to date.


The album has an acoustic current running through it, with a cross between Percy Faith and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young records. The Spree's ability to have crescendos, peaks, and valleys adds depth and texture to the classic harmonies and rich folk music. DeLaughter says there's an arc of leaving the world behind, stripping your old self away, and becoming new again. You're shedding off this ancient world and heading into the future. It's an epic journey that ends with "Morning Sun, I Built The Stairs (Section 52)." DeLaughter's hopeful intonation, uplifted by boisterous horns and cinematic strings, will have you feeling like you've made it and you're going to be alright.


The band has announced a special pop-up listening experience in Klyde Warren Park in Dallas tomorrow, Saturday, November 18, to celebrate the album release. The free event is open to the general public and kicks off at 5 pm with an album playback starting promptly at 6 pm. The Polyphonic Spree will also bring their live show to Dallas and Austin in November and December, with more dates to be announced soon.


The album was crowdfunded by their dedicated audience, which speaks to their love and commitment to the band. DeLaughter even traveled across the country and hosted guerilla "listening experiences" so that people could listen to the album in its entirety. He wanted people to hear it as an album in the classic sense. Back in the day, you'd go buy a record with a friend, come home, go straight to your bedroom, press play, and listen to the whole thing. DeLaughter wanted to achieve that again.


In addition to the music, DeLaughter will star in an upcoming film titled El Tonto Por Cristo. The movie was directed by Josh David Jordan, known for his critically acclaimed debut This World Won't Break. Described as a metaphysical thriller set on the Texas coast, the film features a stellar cast, including Matthew Posey, Mark Ashworth, Jordan Walker Ross, Frank Mosley, Barry Corbin, and DeLaughter, as well as a surprise appearance from The Polyphonic Spree co-founder and manager, Julie Doyle.

Overall, 'Salvage Enterprise' is a must-listen for any music lover. Whether you're a folk, orchestral, or indie music fan, this album has something for everyone. Check it out and let us know what you think!
