Not every submission we get here at The Deli is post-worthy; even making it onto the edge of the blogosphere is an admirable feat. These runners up of The Deli Magazine San Francisco's Open Submission Poll deserve a more than honorable mention, from the classically sweet croonings of Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah to the dance-anthems of The Trims, our wide span of audience is never without fresh new talent to sink their teeth into. For fans of a classic music revisited, Bonnie & The BANG BANG offer sweet, groove-worthy jams and a bevy of lyrical experimentation.
The Trims take the 80's beach scene and stir it up with a spacey reinvention while creating their own uniquely discernible sound. Tall Sheep evaporates pop punk and rains it out through a pink cloud with smile-inducing vocals and grungy synth effects. For a hauntingly thrilling experience, listen to Cazadero for dark basslines and soothing vocals. Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah offer up shrill, exciting vocals and a warm, full sound that commands to be placed on playlists with the classics. Soulful voices and reverberating, confident melodies place Feral Fauna high on the must-listen list. The Galloping Sea is a power-quartet who masterfully touches on a crazy wide range of genres from soulful, bluesy ballads to daring guitar-and-trumpet partnerships. Beautifully poignant lyrics are paired with tranquil yet powerful acoustic and electric guitars thanks to North Home. The Deli thanks you for your submissions, and your talented contributions to the music scene. Keep up the amazing production! -Kat Collins
