FIDLAR is The Deli LA's Best Emerging Artist of the Year

FIDLAR is The Deli LA's Best Emerging Artist of the Year

Deli LA Readers, Our Best of LA 2011 Poll for Emerging Artists got dragged for way too long this year, but we finally got to the end of it. Here are the results of the overall chart, which gathers all the points assigned through local jury, writers, readers and open submissions. Thanks to all those who voted, we hope that you'll find a couple of new all-time favorite artists in this list.

1. FIDLAR

They say that punk bands are in their prime when they're still young, crass, and defiantly apathetic. So it makes sense that  FIDLAR isn't really preoccupied at the moment with tax deductions or even college for that matter - their vicious garage anthems are all about existing in the now, being politically incorrect with a purpose and, you know, having some unabashed fun on a Friday night.

2. ALLAH-LAS

Smoky garage rock is usually associated with San Francisco, greatly due to the communal kinship and prolific work ethic of bands such as the Fresh & Onlys, Sick Alps, and Thee Oh Sees. But go a little further south and you’ll discover the skuzzy, sun dappled sounds of Allah Las. Sculpted and retro-fitted from the perennial Nuggets compilation, the quartet does occasionally touch base with their sixties forbearers, but their delectable fuzzy nuggets invoke a cool, phlegmatic vibe that’s very much attuned with their home city.

3. VANAPRATSA

Vanaprasta knows exactly how to channel Los Angeles' buzz into their music, which is as surprising as a walk in the city itself. Combining psychedelia and rock n’ roll, all five of the band members craft pieces of an intricate puzzle for the listener to put together.
