Mark Nelsen Releases New Music Video - Tennessee Valley

​San Francisco based folk musician, Mark Nelsen has released a new music video for his new country single, ​​Tennessee Valley​. Nelsen is a founding member of the neo psych band, Electric Shepherd, but even after breaking away from the heavy psych rock sound of his full band, Nelsen's sound is very diverse within the realm of his own solo work. His previous release, Homeward was an ode to space travel and self discovery, embodying far out, reverbed and electric guitar compositions. His new single, Tennessee Valley / Girl from Mendo​ is a stripped down country record.

Nelsen is always going to have a very traditional almost Appalachian folk undertone to his music, but ​Tennessee Valley​ (which is no where near Appalachia) just came outright with a simple and unapologetic country folk style. It will be interesting to hear what genre Mark Nelsen touches on next.​ -je

Chicago Best of 2015 Readers' Poll Results! 1. Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orquesta, 2. Burnside & Hooker

The results for our Artist of the Year Readers' poll are in! We'd like to thank everyone who voted in support of their favorite artists, and congratulations to everyone who made the poll this year!

1. Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orquesta (pictured above) was the fan favorite this year and for good reason. 2015 saw the Cumbia Jam band conquer SXSW and release a thrilling debut album, Dos Santos.

--

2. Burnside & Hooker was a close second in the reader's poll but had no less of an impressive year. 2015 saw this blues and jazz influenced Americana band release, All The Way To The Devil, their sophomore album after a sucessful Indiegogo campaign.

--

3. Andrew Sa & His Organic Sound released their debut concept EP, For Tonight, on December 1st, and their beautiful sound nearly avoids classification. This collective of talented musicians prides itself on simple and authentic music and that is clearly garnishing them a termendous amount of support.

--

4. Jude Shuma is at the forefront of a Psychedelic revival in Chicago and 2015 saw him release his debut EP, Insomnium on Tiny Meow Records.

--

5. The Bribes round out this year's Top 5 in the Reader's Poll with their refreshing vintage rock sound. The Logan Square band released their latest album, Nobody Got Anywhere, in 2015.

--

Again, congrats to everyone who was included! Our nominees went out of their way to promote the poll, and they certainly deserve your attention.

Thanks to everyone who shared and voted, and remember to keep an eye on the Deli year-round for all the freshest coverage on new music coming from Chicago!

Burlington's Abbie Morin plays at Nectar's on Saturday (2/20)

A little under a month ago, Burlington-based, self-described “fox folk” artist Abbie Morin shared a slowly involving live version of “Better Half” (streaming below), the wistful opener on her 2015 debut album ‘Shadowproof.’ Over ambling guitars and soaring violins, Morin vividly depicts a distance-bruised relationship while showing pure appreciation for our lovers, wherever they may have gone. Reminiscent of both Angel Olsen and perhaps Lucinda Williams, Morin quietly yet strongly shines with her moving country-folk. Abbie Morin plays at Nectar’s in Burlington, Vermont on Saturday (2/20). – Zach Weg

Boston's Hana Kahn plays Middle East in Cambridge on 2/25

The sensual guitar-based songs of Boston singer/songwriter Hana Kahn compel with their emotional nakedness and elegant musicianship. On the January-released “Venus And Mars” (streaming below), for example, the strong-timbered Kahn boldly details solitude and longing with guitar strums that excitingly add up to what can rightfully be called peaceful sonority. Perhaps like the most moving tracks in the singer/songwriter genre, Kahn’s subtly bold tunes seem personal but, impressively, can speak to many. Hana Kahn plays at Middle East in Cambridge, MA on 2/25.- Zach Weg
