Rocco Deluca, “Drugs ’N Hymns” (429 Records) March 22 at Belly Up could be called a night of folk music, with a bill of headliners Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and opening act Rocco Deluca. But where Edward Sharpe’s freak folk is played by some 10 musicians, on keyboards, electric guitars, drums and horns, Deluca’s music is more recognizable as folk. On “Drugs ‘N Hymns,” the Californian, who sings and plays a resonator guitar, makes hushed songs, like “Snake Oil Salesman,” that dig for something deep and slightly disturbing. But Deluca is no stranger to beauty; the album ends on the title track, with its soaring, gospel-like chorus. Rocco Deluca plays March 22 at Belly Up, opening for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros.
