April 2015
The Tame West
"The Tamed West EP
"
mp3

After a couple active years in the Portland music scene, this past March The Tamed West finally released a first piece of recorded music for listeners to enjoy in the form of a self-titled EP. Though short and sweet, The Tamed West EP boasts influential elements of early Surfer Blood and the late Gauntlet Hair with a heavy wash of reverb over simple yet dancable rhythms, thoughtful vocal melodies and twinkling guitar. The Tamed West claimed the fourth seat in The Deli Portland's 'Best Emerging Artist of 2014' poll, as voted by a jury of local music industry professionals and tastemakers as well as listeners alike. Keep an eye on The Tamed West in the coming years and expect great things.

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.
