Yearly Best Emerging Chicago Artists' Poll begins with Revival Rock/Pop category!

Deli Readers,

Every year, in the early months, The Deli polls several local "scenemakers" to ask their opinion about the best emerging Chicago based artists that got them excited in the previous year. We therefore list these artists on our local homepage, in a Readers' Poll whose results contribute in deciding The Deli Chicago's Artist of the Year.

In an effort to give you more time to check out all the nominated bands, this year we have decided to stretch the readers' polls a little, and, instead of posting a huge list of artists all at once, we will activate one genre-related poll every five days or so.

We begin today with bands in the Revival Rock/Pop category! You can find the poll on the top right of our homepage and you can cast your vote here.

We see our yearly polls as a fun way to engage our readers and the artists involved, and we hope they will get both to discover new local bands deserving of attention.

P.S. To group all artists in these categories we had to "stretch" things a little for a few ones that didn't precisely fit any of the wide musical umbrellas most other bands belonged to - we hope we can be forgiven for that.

   

Salt Cathedral unveils single "Fragments" from upcoming debut LP

Bands, these days (electronic ones in particular) are not in a hurry to put out full length album. Many of them carry on releasing single after single, which are then gathered in EPs or compilation albums when enough songs have been churned out. Following the trend, NYC's Salt Cathedral has been releasing celestial, world music flavored synth-pop since 2013, and they finally announced the ucoming release of their debut LP, entitled 'Big Waves//Small Waves.' They did so by unveiling a preview single entitled 'Fragments," a song about the personal damage created by conflict, which confirms the band's talent so many times we praised in this very blog. Take a listen below.

Yearly Best Emerging Austin Artists' Poll begins with Electronic Category!

Dear Deli Readers,

Every year, in the early months, The Deli polls several local music enthusiasts/experts to ask their opinion about the best emerging Austin-based artists that got them excited in the previous twelve months. We, therefore, list these artists on our local homepage, in a Readers' Poll, whose results contribute in deciding The Deli Austin's Artist of the Year.

In an effort to give you more time to check out all the nominated bands, this year we have decided to stretch the readers' polls a little, and instead of posting a huge list of artists all at once, we will activate one genre-related poll every five days or so.

The first poll of the series is all about electronic local acts! You can find it at the top right of our homepage, and you can cast your vote HERE.

We see our yearly polls as a fun way to engage our readers and the artists involved, and we hope that everybody involved will get to discover new local acts who deserve attention.

Much love,

The Folks at The Deli
