Geographer is The Deli SF Best Emerging Band of 2011





Geographer is The Deli SF Best Emerging Band of 2011

Deli Readers,

Our SF Bay Area Year End Poll for emerging artists is finally coming to its end, and it's great to see it won by Geographer, a great local band that gathered votes from our jury of San Fran scene makers (5 points), Deli writers (1 point) and readers (the band placed 4th in the open poll). These guys' sound is something hard to pin down, and we are always proud when our polls highlight a truly original band. We are all looking forward to their upcoming release, scheduled for 02.28.

1. GEOGRAPHER

Beloved local group Shannon and the Clams (Bethany from Best Coast often sings their praises) placed 2nd with their lo-fi take on the nostaligic '50s girl group sound - which can also evolve towards punk extremes (see video below). Third place was a tie between the two readers' and fans' poll contenders, spacey rockers Excuses for Skipping and orchestral indie rock collective The Family Crest. Kudos also to Whirr, a shoegazer act with a sound that challenges My Bloody Valentine as far as number of guitar layers. They placed 5th thanks to 5 jurors points (as many as the top two bands).

2. SHANNON & THE CLAMS

3a. THE FAMILY CREST
