Portland's Best in Psych and Shoegaze: Zozma and Cat Hoch

Our more trippy genre poll, psych and shoegaze, ran gazed out slow fuzz with the strange visuals psychedelia forces your mind to make. The two winners all of you felt rocked 2016 honestly come as no surprise, since they've been packing venues and mesmerized crowds all throughout the last year. Big congratulations go out to Zozma and Cat Hoch! Both of these names are of course familiar in the Deli Portland world, because our Deli readers have brought them to the top before.

We've thought of Zozma as one of the best psych acts in Portland for awhile now. All of you voted them as our Artist of the Month back in September of last year, so seeing them as the winner of our readers' poll solidifies their stance as the rulers of our spiritual psych world.

This also isn't the first Deli success Cat Hoch and her band have seen with the Deli either. She came out on top entirely in 2015, when she was voted the Best Emerging Artist of that year. From opening up for Ride to commanding even bigger stages, Cat Hoch and her talented group of musicians aren't stopping anytime soon.

The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Psych Pop/Rock Artist: The Dove & The Wolf!

After compiling the jurors', readers'/fans' and writers' votes for The Deli Philly's Best Emerging Psych Pop/Rock artists, congrats to The Dove & The Wolf! Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard had already started making a name for themselves under the moniker with the release of their debut self-titled EP and and tours with Rachael Yamagata and Butch Walker. After a transformative experience, while being in Paris during the Bataclan terrorist attack, the ladies were eventually able to renew their visas and return home to Philly. Inspired by their experiences during those troubling times, the duo eventually teamed up with Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs) and Nick Krill (The Spinto Band) to record the moving I Don't Know What To Feel. And what was originally self-released as a five-song EP has now expanded to seven, and will be reissued on March 24 via Fat Possum so this victory looks to be just the start of what should be another memorable year for The Dove & The Wolf - hopefully in a much better way.

New Stinking Lizaveta Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

It's been nearly half a decade since we've had a new album from Philly's stoner metal power trio Stinking Lizaveta. For the group's follow-up to 2012's The Seventh Direction, the band traveled to the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana to record Journey to the Underworld at "Nosferatus' Lair" Studio. Guitarist Yanni Papadopoulos shared with the UK blog, The Sludgelord, "We wanted to record in New Orleans because of the demonic musical energy one feels down there... At the bottom of the Mississippi you get an underworld feel, like the spirits are all alive and ready to commune with you. Maybe it's Voodoo, or just the deep musical culture." You can stream and purchase Journey to the Underworld, which is available via Translation Loss Records, below.

The Deli Philly's Yearly Readers'/Fans' Psych Rock/Pop Poll Winner: Ceramic Animal

We just wrapped up our Yearly Readers'/Fans' Poll for the categories of Psych Rock/Pop. Thank you to those who took the time to check out and vote for some of the amazing talent on our nominees list. It was another heated battle.

Congrats go out to the suave, turtleneck-wearing gang of Ceramic Animal! The Bucks County quartet casually grooved its way into the Philly music scene with its radio-ready, retro-tinged, self-proclaimed brand of "dad rock," found on the group's debut release, The Cart, which so happened to be recorded at the band's Daddy's Basement Studio. Frontman Warrren Regan charms with a crooner-like magnetism, as cohorts Elliott Regan, Erik Regan, and Walker Gall assist in laying down some sophisticated, endearing tunes. Expect to hear more from these old souls in the coming years!

Whiskey and Rock Tonight at Tanker

Tonight, come out and enjoy two of the greatest things life has to offer - whiskey and rock music - for free.

Well, the whiskey may not be free, but the music is and that's where the most enjoyment will come from. Elements of punk, hardcore and doom focalize for Tanker's first (and possibly last) show, with sets from post-grunge ghost rock duo Glacial Fall, sci-fi hardcore punks 42 Ford Prefect, the ski masked vigor of G*U*N and the good feels of Bad Sex.

A lineup like this guarantees Tanker's first show is going to get a bit rowdy, so come prepared to leave with the stench of booze and sweat all over you. Music will start somewhat promptly at 8pm.
