catl @ the Horseshoe

CATL is a badass duo that  brings you back to the days of dirty blues! They shake you up with fat guitar grooves, hard, bare drumming and killer gritty vocals. Their most recent album “This Shakin’ House” is littered with bebop from driving dance tunes, to harmony soaked blues-folk inspired tracks, it packs all the punch and vivacity you’d expect from a rock band and then some. Their Live shows seem to be no exception to that unmistakable zest,  ‘cause rumour has it they literally leave their blood and sweat on stage. They headline Jan 31 @ The Horseshoe Tavern, go find out if the rumours are true! -Courtney Chalapenko

Best of 2014 Poll for Emerging Toronto Artists: FINAL RESULTS! 1. Teenage kicks, 2. Laura Cole, 3. Sun K

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging Toronto Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and rather complicated) process, but we pulled it off with remarkable flair!

Congrats to loud rock duo Teenage Kicks (pictured and streaming below) for winning the aggregate chart (see below) and therefore becoming The Deli Toronto's first Emerging Artist of the Year! Because of this they'll be featured in our SXSW print issue (10k copies of it will be distributed in Austin during Music Week - read last year's edition here).

Thumbs up to retro-pop starlet Laura Cole and Lou Reed-esque quintet Sun K, also winners of our Readers and Fans Poll, who placed respectively second and third.

In case you are wondering how our poll works, here's a quick explanation:

1. First, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees.
2. Then we polled a list of 20+ Toronto scene expert (our jury) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each.
3. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers and writers.

We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are a geek interested in all the subtleties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules here (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music Toronto produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!

The Zilis @ Baltimore House

Old school rock n’ roll meets a modern edge with The Zilis. Their latest album Sketches II takes you on a journey through their eclectic musical influences; from blues to pop, R&B and jazz, it all can be heard in their rock and roll sound. “Don’t Ever Change”, the third song on their album, is a great example of what these guys are about, fun and roaring with energy! They open the song with some guitar feedback which quickly turns into surf rock tune, making you want to grab a partner and break into some sort of 60’s jive. Much like the rest of the album, it's got that get up and move vibe, but don't let that fool you, these guys show they've got a softer side too. If you feel like tearing up to some heart-wrenching bluesy music throw on “Ballad of a Broken Heart”. These guys are incredibly diverse, you won't regret giving them a listen! So, brave the snow and warm up with The Zilis tonight, they're worth the trek! Jan 27 @ Baltimore House.-Courtney Chalapenko

Jaunt @ the Horseshoe

Feel the sun on your face as Jaunt warms the skin with the steady embrace of honest and unpretentious feeling. They juxtapose traditional sound with the sweet lullaby of  “Intimate Sunrise”.  Setting the mood with an affectionate vocal, inviting guitars, glistening keys and tender beats of the bass and drums; they create such belief as if you were the sun crossing the horizon and traveling through the atmosphere changing color. Listen to their sounds of glitter and gold tonight @ the Horseshoe.
