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

Strangers by Accident On the Road to SXSW

 Boston troubadours, Strangers by Accident, are hitting the road next week, on their musical pilgrimage to SXSW.  Formed by duo Brian Sousa and Amy Wynne in 2015, Strangers is a beautifully minimalist take on modern indie-folk.  It's the kind of sound you can carry around in a suitcase, intimate and earnest.  The band employs a timeless, old-school respect for songwriting that will keep their music resonating with new fans in Austin this March.  Check them out at one of their MA tour dates:  3/4 at Toad in Cambridge and 3/6 at Bishop's Lounge in Northampton. -Brian Varneke 

Best of New England Folk/Soul Reader's Poll: Frank Viele

 The Deli readers have spoken, choosing Connecticut songwriter Frank Viele as the best emerging New England folk/soul artist of 2016.  A cocktail of classic soul/RnB, alt-rock, and a dash of country twang, Viele earns a place alongside artists like Ray Lamontagne and The Black Crowes, keeping the roots alive and well.  Check out the dates for Frank's current US tour here and stay tuned for more poll results! -Brian Varneke

Cardinals Transform With Release of Acoustic EP Aftertaste

 After a whirlwind year of recording and touring, Boston pop-punkers Tighticus Finch have flown from the nest as Cardinals.  Equipped with a new acoustic EP, Aftertaste, duo Emily Ronna and CJ Rarela are putting the proverbial (and literal) band back together, harnessing the energy of Finch and the mature emotional content that comes with a year of new experiences.  The highlight track for us is "Of Montreal", a ballad that puts Ronna's vocals to the test (which she passes).  Check them out live at Bungalow Bar & Grill in Manchester, NH with Woven in Hiatus, Paper Monsters, Hours North, and The Grebes. -Brian Varneke

Jack Romanov Releases New EP "The Smoking Room Sessions: I"

The environment in which an album is recorded can often have a strong effect on a band's music.  It can also, on occasion, alter the perception of the listener.  Such is the case for Boston indie-rockers Jack Romanov in their new EP, The Smoking Room Sessions: I, recorded, mixed, and mastered in an East Boston funeral home.  The captivating sound of the quartet is amplified, creating a mixed atmosphere of curiosity, melancholy, and introspection.  The first of four EPs to be released in the coming weeks, volume 1 is enough for us to pay close attention to future output from the band.  Check out the album link below and let us know what you think. -Brian Varneke
