New First Time's the Charm Compilation Available for Streaming & Purchase

First Time's the Charm was initially held in 2013 at PhilaMOCA, providing a supportive environment for women, members of the LBGTQ community, and people of color to form bands and perform on stage for the first time. The rad event raised funds to help start the DIY PHL PA Share program, which has provided amplification for nearly 250 events in the Philly community. The sophomore incarnation of FTTC returned last year to the beloved, former mausoleum/Mad Decent HQ, expanding to a two-night festival. Well, 15 of its participating acts came together once again to contribute recordings to the No Gatekeepers: First Time's the Charm 2016 compilation, which was recorded/mixed by James Clark Connor and produced by John Vettese at WXPN. Check out tracks from fledgling acts such as Aster More, Dumb Hair, Heretrix, Sister Trudy, and many others! You can stream and purchase the album below, and all proceeds will be donated towards putting together the next FTTC.





Best Emerging NYC Bands 2017, the Deli's List!

Dear Deli Readers,

We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging NYC Artists Poll. As usual, it’s been a lengthy, exhausting, painstaking journey through an abundance of numbers, band names, and some seriously rad tunes. Now, before we get to our list of this year’s Top Performers, we would like to thank our wonderful, knowledgeable jury of local music experts/enthusiasts (which you can view below), dedicated Deli writers and all those who took the time to check out our nominees and cast their votes. You’re the best, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!
 
The Deli NYC Jurors:
Rami (PopGun Presents), Lauren (Northside Media Group), Katie Jones (National Sawdust), Hannah Gold (City Winery), Chris Pickering (Alphaville), Christopher Thomas, Matt (Rockwood Music Hall), Paolo De Gregorio (The Deli), Paul Bacher (The Knit), Christine (Sofar Sounds), Brett Tabisel (LPR NYC), Michelle (Bowery Ballroom), Tim (ASCAP), Eric (The Wild Honey Pie), Alex (Webster Hall), Patrick (Oh My Rockness), Tyler (Brooklyn Bazaar), Greg (The Delancey), Bowery Electric, Grace Gibson (Arlene's Grocery)
 
 
BEST OF NYC POLL - THE FINAL RESULTS
 
1. BABY SHAKES
This year's Best of NYC band is Baby Shakes, a power-pop/garage rock four-piece (there's a ghost member in the band) that knows how to have fun. The group wins this poll's grand prize: the cover of the spring 2017 issue of The Deli - we are looking forward to that issue! The band's catalogue is pleasantly varied, with everything from relaxed surf rock tunes to easy rock-n-rollers to borderline punk, heavy-hitters. Though the expert guitar work of Mary Blount and Judy Lindsay is apparent, featuring harmonization, synchronized riffs, and the occasional shredtastic solo, what really makes Baby Shakes so infectious is the raw force and high energy of their songs. It's something you can pick up on even through earbuds. Be on the lookout for their new album Turn It Up out this spring. - Andrew Strader

2. BANGLADEAFY!
Bangladeafy!
 is a band that's hard to forget after a first listen. They take a mathy, complex, progressive approach to metal without resulting obnoxious. They tow a unique line somewhere between metal and electronica, using arpeggiating synths to compliment complex percussion patterns and distorted guitars. This band is, without a doubt, carving a new path for metal in the tech age. - Andrew Strader

3. BREANNA BARBARA
Breanna Barbara
, self described as "occult blues" reimagines the roots of that genre, crafting a witchy, psychedelic take on it. Her latest record, Mirage Dreams was made in Nashville and there's no hiding it: slide guitar, rhodes, and fuzzy bass, all come together to create a fresh take on an authentically southern sound, but with an edge. - Andrew Strader

The Beach Bats - "Beach Body"

Self professed "sandy garage rock from an inner city beach". The Beach Bats are from Hamilton. So they must be hangin out at the beach with the unswimmable water. If it helps them create these sweet surf-rock tunes then I hope they keep doin what their doing. Moon Mutt, Goth Bikini and Roger Banks are responsible for the Beach Bats. They mix surf rhythms with indie rock melodies along with 90s punk rock vocals. I could hear the tune "Beach Body" be played on the film "Clerks". - Kris Gies
