Thanks for All Your Support!

 
We loved doing this year's poll, but we are tired and very happy to slip into something more comfortable. Now, we can go back to writing and checking out more new music to share with you. (We’re really not that good at math.) But we definitely had an amazing time putting this together. Once again, we learned so much more about our beloved local music scene through this poll. We hope that you did too, or at least, discovered a new artist that you might want to check out live or buy their album. We still have a few related interviews and top performer writeups for you to check out so stay tuned. Special thanks to our drop-dead gorgeous jury, talented local artists and all who voted! You ROCK!

We’re Still Here for Ya

 

 
Sorry Open Bloggers, we know that we keep using this excuse because it’s true. The poll hit some of our lives like a shit storm. We just checked our Open Blog mailbox so your blogs, videos, genitals…oops I mean pics and anything else you’d like the world to know about you are finally up (double sorries and my bads to any shows that had passed). We promise to check our box better in the future (that’s what she said). That being said there is a slew of new acts at our Open Blog for you to check out or write one yourself and submit it here. We look forward to learning more about you! - The Deli Staff

Winner of The Deli’s Best Local Record Label: Punk Rock Payroll!

 

 
It was certainly a tight race this year, but we are happy to announce that Punk Rock Payroll are the winners of our Best Local Record Label Poll which was voted on by our selected jury. They managed to edge out Siltbreeze Records by one vote, but we certainly believe that Siltbreeze deserves kudos for their years of continuous work with such interesting artists. However, this moment is about the high-quality work that Punk Rock Payroll is churning out from their headquarters in South Philly. Frede and Misty Zimmer’s adventurous spirit led by their belief in the things that they are passionate about has led them to the top of our list, and it doesn’t hurt that we love artists on their roster like The Extraordinaires and Dangerous Ponies. Congrats for seeing art in everything that you do! punkrockpayroll.com/ - The Deli Staff

Levar Mother Fucking Burton Would Be Proud of Reading Rainbow!



When I tell people that Reading Rainbow are one of my favorite new bands from Philly, they often ask me to describe what they sound like. In Reading Rainbow’s case, I can’t find the appropriate comparisons. I can’t say if you like Jesus & Mary Chain then you’ll like Reading Rainbow. But I will. Can’t say that they're My Bloody Valentine meets The Ronettes meets Bo Diddley meets Velvet Underground is right on either, but it sort of is. My point here being that while Reading Rainbow may conjure up your own personal touchstones, they are uniquely creating their own reverb nation with lo-fi sharpness, indulgent psychedelia and to-the-point noise pop melodies. Last year Reading Rainbow’s Sarah and Rob made a great record called Mystical Participationthat you owe to yourself to buy and vibe out to. myspace.com/levarmotherfuckingburton - Bruce Warren, WXPN/Some Velvet Blog
