Portland Best of 2015 Readers' Poll Results Are In!

A few days ago marked the end of the Deli Portland's Best of 2015 Readers' Poll, spotlighting our varied amount of local talent. It's after a rigorous effort that we can now announce the Top 5 emerging Portland acts as picked by you, the readers. Enjoy, and stay tuned for the upcoming composite chart, which will include the votes from our jury! 

1. LiquidLight

Alternative rock outfit LiquidLight catapulted to the top of the charts with not only their easily lovable songs, but also with their fervent ability to get themselves heard! Tinges of everything from psych rock to early 2000's pop punk can be found their songs. Some only in small elements, but enough to make LiquidLight's sound specific to them. Say hello to Portland's best band of 2015.

------

2. Foxy Lemon

Sensually bluesy and devotedly oozing classical rock qualities, Foxy Lemon have crooned their way into the hearts of many of us, playing electrifying shows to a diverse crowds and immediately turning them into fans. There's a certain allure to Foxy Lemon that other can't be ignored, an obvious one that got them up to our #2 slot.

------

3. Coco Columbia

She's animated and delightfully pleasant, jamming out through her huge hair and eclectic style, making music that's just as colossally interesting. It's equal parts dreamy, electronic, indie and jazzy, the perfect blend for well rounded pop. 

------

4. The Cabin Project

The Cabin Project take a symphonic approach to indie rock, with their songs seeming to sweep over you like a leaves in a light wind. Harmonies and string sections flirt playfully, with weighty choruses and orchestral effects that elevate their songs to a whole other level.

------

5. Space Shark

Space Shark is an interesting band of sorts, taking the best of heady space rock and jam band minutia to manifest a low key heaviness. Their standout track, "Now Is We" off their latest release Ghosts, has been receiving much deserved praise for its perfect representation of Space Shark's forte.

------

Let's also give a shout out to Dirty Revival, Consumer, Rod, The Ghost Ease and White Bear Polar Tundra for rounding out the rest of our Top 10. A big thanks also goes out to all the bands that participated, promoted and worked their damn hardest to get their music heard. Also, a thank you to everyone that voted. We do this for all you guys. If you'd like to dive into the deep with the vote counts, you can find the results, based on genre, by clicking the links below.

Antique Naked Soul Performs Live at Oakland Museum of California - 2/5

Antique Naked Soul is stepping out to perform on their home turf with two free shows this week. Singer Candice “Antique” Davis and her beat boxing counterparts are using nothing but their vocal chords to bring their audiences to a soulful hip-hop haven.

The team of hip-hop preservationists are putting on a two part event in Oakland on February 5th and 9th bringing together music, film, and activism . They will be performing at the Oakland Museum of California on friday at 7 pm, and at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland on Tuesday. The latter performance will be accompanied by a screening of “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution”.

The group released their debut album back in 2013 to an exceedingly satisfied audience, and have since been working on a follow up release due some time this year. Thus far Antique Naked Soul’s formula involves looping and layering vocal percussions and melodies to establish a full base sound, on top of which Antique’s soulful lyrics contribute the crucial layer that beautiful ties together their innovative, distinct, and powerful sound. The leading lady of this ensemble, is not only a talented creative, but also a proactive educator. She teaches the necessity of social and racial justice, both in the classroom and in the studio. This weeks performances serves as a direct example of Antique Naked Soul’s desire to utilize their creativity to inspire transformation in people and culture. -Julia deAnda

Let it flow with Soft Bodies, see them live 01.30

The debut EP by Soft Bodies is a record in constant motion. Not motion like a freight train barreling down the line or an airplane dipping and diving through the clouds, but motion like something more organic and common to us all. It pulses, it waves, it flows, and when it skips a beat and jumps right for you, it’s both startling and beautiful. Though the tracks here range from laid back 90’s house fare (in the best way possible) to funky-as-it-gets, they move as smoothly from one to the next as they do from verse to chorus.

Catch Soft Bodies this Saturday (01.30) at Cafe Coco and pick up a free copy of the EP while you're there. -Austin Phy
