Best of New England Indie Rock/Pop Artist: Tall Teenagers, Mokita, XR Tabs

Deli Readers!

The results are in for our year-end Best Emerging New England Indie Rock Artist poll.  The popular vote has elected Tall Teenagers from Providence, RI as our 2016 Deli Readers' champions for the Indie Rock/Pop category.  They are a name we've been hearing a lot this past year and we are excited to see what 2017 has in store for them.  We would also like to give a shout-out to Boston garage-rockers Mokita for giving them a run for their money.

In addition, the points accumulated through votes cast by our panel of jurors, and a third position in the readers' poll, crowned XR Tabs and their brand of experimental indie-pop as the Best of New England in this category. Check out their new single "Wet Fire for Edison the Unclean" and see what all the hype is about.

As always, we'd like to thank all of our artists, jurors, and readers for participating in this year's polls.  Stay tuned and vote for all of our remaining genre polls! -Brian Varneke

 A female-fronted band with a larger-than-life sound, Berklee alt-rockers, Self Portraits, employ an impressive, accessible sound that is sure to leave a mark on the Boston music scene.  Their music is full of varied influences, catchy pop sensibilities with an arena rock energy.  Full of soaring guitars and powerhouse vocals, Self Portraits is a force to be reckoned with.  Catch them at The Red Room at Cafe 939 on 2/17 with The Interlopers and Brandon Diaz 'N Soul. -Brian Varneke

 

White Cassette Premieres Music Video for New Single "Whywhom"

 There's an inviting quality to New World Haunts, the debut effort from indie-rock group, White Cassette.  It's an original, atmospheric sound that never outstays its welcome.  Filled with subtle, mature grooves and intelligent, emotional lyrics, Haunts, is an impressively refined entry for the Boston quintet.  The album is available on most streaming platforms, but take a few minutes to brush up on your ping-pong skills, and check out the video for their single "Whywhom" below. -Brian Varneke

Boston's Aloud Releases Single "Agua Mala" to Combat Flint, Michigan Water Crisis

 In an effort to help combat the ongoing water crisis in Flint, MI, Boston-based alt/soul-rockers Aloud have teamed up with Kendra Jones of Brooklyn's Cold Blood Club to lend a helping hand through their new single "Agua Mala".  Frustrated with the three year, man-made disaster that has rocked a community and taken away a basic human commodity, this collaboration gives listeners a way to give much needed support to the people of Flint.  All proceeds from downloads of "Agua Mala" will go directly to the Flint Water Fund set up by The United Way of Genesee County. -Brian Varneke

Whatever Whatever Releases New Single "House Boy"

 With their new single "House Boy", Boston alt-rockers Whatever Whatever have re-asserted themselves as buzzworthy newcomers to the New England scene.  If you missed their debut EP, Who's This, we encourage you to go back and check it out.  The two works combined create a relevant and individual voice, both lyrically and musically, that is rare for a band of their limited discography.  "House Boy" (produced by Converse Rubber Tracks producer, David Minehan) is a taste of things to come, and we can't wait to see where their road leads next. -Brian Varneke
