A Heart is a Spade: White Hinterland Visits WNYC


March 2014
Hands In
"Ployester Itch
"
mp3

Portland's Eric Crosby is blessed with musical genious. His brilliance has been showcased in various groups through the years, including Yourself & The Air, and Settlers, but his solo project Hands In is truely on point. Through a combination of loops and live perormance, he creates a blend of lo-fi psych that I could listen to on repeat for days.

The track 'Take Time Enough' off his January 2014 release Polyester Itch floats through a dreamy cloud of punching synth, sampled drums and spaced out soothing vocals that can lift the heaviest of depression on a gloomy Portland day. Listen to the full album here. - Travis Leipzig

Best of Portland -- Fans' Poll Concludes and Winners Announced!

Best of Portland -- Fans' Poll Concludes and Winners Announced!

We are happy to announce that the final round of our "Best Emerging Act of 2011"--the Fans' Poll--has finally concluded! While this portion of voting is only one part of the entire process, it is a crucial poll--one that not only wins the top act the "Artist of the Month" banner at the top of the page, but also has commonly broken close ties for "Best Emerging Act" in years past. All that being said, we would like to congratulate the following "Top Three" acts and their fans for their dedication in getting out the vote:

1. The Druthers

The Druthers

Feel good, country-tinged soft rock nestled comfortably between Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" and a Taylor Swift/John Mayer duet.

2. Tope

Tope

A Portland rhymesayer and prolific beatmaker that's as concerned with the size of his chain as he is with genrefication  - not very. 

3. Sons of Huns

Sons of Huns

Top 5 contenders in the Open Submission portion of this year's "Best of" poll. This is a group that knows where rock came from and aims to never let it die.

Thanks to the bands, but most importantly though, to all the fans who participated in the voting process. Without you, the Deli and all of the bands involved would likely not exist.
