Our selected jurors and The Deli Magazine readers have spoken! The Oakland based band, Mall Walk have officially won The Deli SF Artist of the Year Composite Chart (readers+jurors) Poll for the Indie Rock/Pop Category!

I know that sounds like a mouthful, but it just means it's the chart that considers both the votes of our jury of "local scene experts" (who nominated all the bands in the list) AND our readers! These guys are acutally a personal fave band of mine.  

Congratulations to this talented band of beings. Well done and Godspeed! Enjoy this victory! Soak it in!

Portland's Best in Indie Rock/Post-Punk for 2017: Lithics and The Toads

 *photo by Cary Clarke

As we come to the close of another round of genre polling, this one sees an interesting pair of categories mashing up together in voting. Thinking of indie rock and post-punk in the same light is weird enough, but what isn't strange is who all of you chose as the winners. We're pleased to present you with the best in indie rock and post-punk for 2017: Lithics and The Toads.

Lithics are the winners of our overall poll, with much love given to them from our anonymous jurors. They dropped Borrowed Floors last year, along with playing a series of shows throughout the year that made a lasting impression on many of our poll participants. One of their first shows of 2017 will be this Friday with Sad Horse and Blesst Chest at Turn Turn Turn.

The Toads took over the readers' poll with their fun loving, power pop indie rock without a problem. Theses dudes really know how to write an easily lovable rock song that makes you want to pogo up and down with a huge smile on your face. Always Be Nice, the EP they released in October of last year, is a much needed reminder to spread some love and kindness around. You can check out their lovely live set at Quarterworld on Thursday with Radler.

A more than honorable mention needs to go out to Star Club, who gave The Toads a huge run for their money in the readers' poll!

Candace is Back with Another Valentine's Day Soundtrack

Last year, goblin pop trio Candace shared a duo of specially covered love songs for the sake of Valentine's Day. They've done it again this year, and even included one of their own original tracks as an extra delight.

While you're getting ready for your big Valentine's date or perhaps just chilling at home demuring the date, Candace's mini playlist is worthy of some proper rotation. Providing their own gazed out bedroom pop versions of "Something's On My Mind" by Karen Dalton and "Do I get So Shy" by Shoes, along with a newer song of theirs called "Great Basin," their V-Day release is honestly one of the best things about today. Here's to hoping it becomes an actual tradition.

You can catch Candace playing on Thursday, February 16 for a Lose Yr Mind sponsored show along with Souvenir Driver and Sinless.

New Tremellow/Haggert Mctaggert Split Available for Streaming & Purchase

Tremellow (a.k.a. Keith Abrams of Pine Barons) and Haggert Mctaggert (a.k.a. Braden Lawrence of The Districts) have issued a split release, Doom Paste, whose proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood. “Plastic Impulse” unwinds with familiar acoustic strumming, before cruising in a melodic but "out there" groove in an MGMT pop-psych manner, while “Franny” propels forward in on space-age, pulsating, dance beat with modulating vocals. Both artists will be performing at an ACLU benefit this Sunday, February 19 at Ortlieb’s as part of a bill that also includes Straw Hats, Pine Barons, and Mumblr. Keep up the generosity, Philly!

New Track: "New Dream" - Dulls

Fall languidly into the void of Dulls' new single, “New Dream,” before abruptly being snatched away in the turbulent waves of fuzzed-out guitar. The recording from Philly dream-pop/shoegaze four-piece reveals a giant leap forward in production from the group's self-titled debut EP. Recorded and mixed by John Ceparano (of The Stargazer Lilies), it’s the latest off the band’s forthcoming album, Moon Violet, due out February 24. Dulls are also set to open for No Joy that same evening at Kung Fu Necktie. (Photo by Caitlin Vivian)
