What is The Deli?
The Deli is an independent publication and website that focuses on local indie music scenes and emerging artists (from rock to folk, from electronica to "avant-indie," with a little bit of hip-hop). It currently publishes a printed magazine about the NYC and LA music scenes and has daily updated, separate webpages tackling new emerging music in various cities, including NYC, LA, SF, Chicago, and Nashville.

What is The Deli LA?
The Deli LA is a quarterly magazine and daily updated Web site focused on the independent music scene of the LA area.

Mission Statement
The Deli LA is a resource for Los Angeles musical artists and fans. We want to be a place where bands share their music with others, and where fans make their own decisions about what local music they enjoy.

CD Submission Policy
The Deli LA only reviews music from artists based in LA and surrounding areas.

At this time we only accept digital submission through our CD Submission System here.

For added exposure, you can post mp3s and a blurb about your band on the local Open Blog [this feature will be back soon].
