Best Emerging NYC Bands 2017, the Deli's List!

Dear Deli Readers,

We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging NYC Artists Poll. As usual, it’s been a lengthy, exhausting, painstaking journey through an abundance of numbers, band names, and some seriously rad tunes. Now, before we get to our list of this year’s Top Performers, we would like to thank our wonderful, knowledgeable jury of local music experts/enthusiasts (which you can view below), dedicated Deli writers and all those who took the time to check out our nominees and cast their votes. You’re the best, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!
 
The Deli NYC Jurors:
Rami (PopGun Presents), Lauren (Northside Media Group), Katie Jones (National Sawdust), Hannah Gold (City Winery), Chris Pickering (Alphaville), Christopher Thomas, Matt (Rockwood Music Hall), Paolo De Gregorio (The Deli), Paul Bacher (The Knit), Christine (Sofar Sounds), Brett Tabisel (LPR NYC), Michelle (Bowery Ballroom), Tim (ASCAP), Eric (The Wild Honey Pie), Alex (Webster Hall), Patrick (Oh My Rockness), Tyler (Brooklyn Bazaar), Greg (The Delancey), Bowery Electric, Grace Gibson (Arlene's Grocery)
 
 
BEST OF NYC POLL - THE FINAL RESULTS
 
1. BABY SHAKES
This year's Best of NYC band is Baby Shakes, a power-pop/garage rock four-piece (there's a ghost member in the band) that knows how to have fun. The group wins this poll's grand prize: the cover of the spring 2017 issue of The Deli - we are looking forward to that issue! The band's catalogue is pleasantly varied, with everything from relaxed surf rock tunes to easy rock-n-rollers to borderline punk, heavy-hitters. Though the expert guitar work of Mary Blount and Judy Lindsay is apparent, featuring harmonization, synchronized riffs, and the occasional shredtastic solo, what really makes Baby Shakes so infectious is the raw force and high energy of their songs. It's something you can pick up on even through earbuds. Be on the lookout for their new album Turn It Up out this spring. - Andrew Strader

2. BANGLADEAFY!
Bangladeafy!
 is a band that's hard to forget after a first listen. They take a mathy, complex, progressive approach to metal without resulting obnoxious. They tow a unique line somewhere between metal and electronica, using arpeggiating synths to compliment complex percussion patterns and distorted guitars. This band is, without a doubt, carving a new path for metal in the tech age. - Andrew Strader

3. BREANNA BARBARA
Breanna Barbara
, self described as "occult blues" reimagines the roots of that genre, crafting a witchy, psychedelic take on it. Her latest record, Mirage Dreams was made in Nashville and there's no hiding it: slide guitar, rhodes, and fuzzy bass, all come together to create a fresh take on an authentically southern sound, but with an edge. - Andrew Strader

The Folks at The Deli

Grim Streaker to lay down some noise-indie-garage vibes at Cape Town 3/25

Kicking off with just a couple of stick clicks, Grim Streakers’ debut track, “Guts,” errupts in a rush of noise and punk-rock bravado. The Brooklyn-based band thrusts the listen into an engulfing wall of sound that's at once thick, trashy and catchy. The release is a spitfire of a track that does it all while just clocking above the 2-minute mark, and if it's a sign of what's to come, then we're expecting big things out of the group. Catch Grim Streaker live at Cape Town 3/25 alongside Cold Fronts, The Howl, and The Boobies, and be sure to stream "Guts" below. - Olivia Sisinni

Dirty Blondes to bring their slow garage-psych jams to Cape House tonight (03.22)

While there are a few bands operating under the Dirty Blondes monkier populating various reaches of the internet, the Brooklyn-based fourpiece is the only group that really lives up to the name--laying down growling, blitzed out garage-psych jams that could have easily just rolled out of bed. The band busts out tracks with jangly guitars, lax vocals, and the dynamic deftness of the Pixies, but the delicious layer of lo-fi fuzz is what will really leave you feeling dirty. Catch Dirty Blondes live at Cape House tonight (3/22) alongside Surf Rock is Dead, Better Head, and DA POP, but in the meantime, you can get your fix by streaming them below. - Olivia Sisinni

New Track: “I’m a Tired Man (But I Won’t Cry About It)” - Poor Devils

Idaho, the forthcoming EP from Poor Devils, will be released on April 7. However, “I’m a Tired Man (But I Won’t Cry About It)” immediately smacks as a quaking combination of bass and guitar shake out the cobwebs. Tunneling vocals temporarily shift the onus, but the brooding bombardment of a surf-psych hybrid quickly takes back the controls. You can catch the band's release show that same evening at J.R.'s with Ciera Fazio and Lyzzi Moore.
