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

Dear Deli Readers,

We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging LA 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 LA Jurors:

Janette Ayub (Girl Underground), Brandon (The Burning Ear), David Evanko (Minivan Photography), Grant Owen (We Found New Music), Deborah Farnault, Dan Frazier (Free Bike Valet), Brandon (SUPERGOODMUSIC), Matt Draper, LA Weekly, The Regent Theater, The Hi-Hat, Liz Garo (The Echo), Juan Rodríguez (The Deli LA), Paolo de Gregorio (The Deli NYC).

BEST OF LA POLL - The FINAL RESULTS

1. THE TRACKS

The East L.A. quartet is giving indie rock a new face with their brash guitar dynamics, contributing a big sound that operates on a grander scale. But as they tackle themes that range from race to social class, these garage rockers punctuate their rising anthems with plenty of smarts, too.

 

2. LAEL NEALE

The evocative singer-songwriter writes stripped-down, spacious ballads that gain potency with her fragile croon.

 

3. MIND MONOGRAM

The trippy quartet creates rapturous soundscapes that have a classic songwriting mold even when they're at their most experimental.

The Tracks release passionate debut single "Go Out Tonight"

The Tracks' first single, “Go Out Tonight”, is the reason why indie rock is making a comeback. At first listen you might mistake the East LA quartet for an English rock band because they’re so effortlessly cool. Guitarist-vocalist Venancio Bermudez sings fearlessly and with passion, roaring over guitar riffs and drums. Even with only one single under their belt, there’s a certain sense of urgency and self-awareness that makes them important to today’s indie rock scene. They’ve just released a video for their first song and plan on releasing  the record soon. The Tracks have a bunch of gigs lined up this summer, so be on the lookout. - Lea Phillips
