Best New England Emerging Artists 2017: The Deli's Poll Results

Dear Deli Readers,

We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging New England 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!

1. Crumb is an outfit that takes the pleasantly dissonant atmosphere of smooth jazz and molds it into psych rock masterpieces. Their songs glide along steady pace, revealing highly skilled instrumentation without abandoning the groove. There are long stretches of jam that prove remiscent of classic indie rockers like Lotus Plaza, but there are moments of unbridled wierdness and pure chaos, sprinkled in to add some spice to the psychedelic sonic brew. Crumb is the new must listen for psych fans in New England.

2. XR Tabs is a band to which it's nearly impossible to assign a definitive genre. Their work contains elements of experimental noise rock, post-punk, indie rock, and electronica. They traverse unclaimed musical territory almost as a rule, making listening a wholly unexpected experience.

---

3. Pompo is an alt rock band that blends elements of funk and blues to create a hybrid, modern alternative rock sound. With lengthy, funk jams that serve as an instant reminder of early Red Hot Chili Peppers, they've honed a classic sound and made it their own.

Crumb Wins Juror's Pick for Best Emerging Folk/Soul Artist of 2016

 With 7.5 votes, Crumb's, laid-back grooves have won over our panel of jurors, earning them the title of Best Emerging New England Folk/Soul Artist in our overall poll.  Their dreamy, introspective psych-funk vibe brought Crumb to our attention back in November and we're thrilled they are getting the recognition we feel they deserve.  Their music is easy to get lost in, while maintaining interesting instrumentals and perfectly understated vocals to keep you engaged, if that's your thing.  Check out their latest release below. -Brian Varneke

Buzz Alert: Crumb leaves us hungry for more of their jazzy soul psych tunes

Boston-based Crumb offers laid-back tunes for reflective mornings. Layering singer/guitarist Lila Ramani's effortless, nonchalant vocals over a bed of sometimes-funky-often-jazzy psych rock, the band delivers dulcet tunes with a serious side of haze. The lyricism invites introspection, and instrumentals often wind down unexpected turns, but Crumb's music manages to be engaging without being overly demanding of their listeners. Right now, the band's Soundcloud account description is simply inscribed with the words "More to come." We'll certainly be looking forward to the next release from the band, but in the meantime, you can stream Crumb below.-Olivia Sisinni
