Best of 2013 Poll for NYC Emerging Artists: FINAL RESULTS!





Best of 2013 Poll for NYC Emerging Artists: FINAL RESULTS!

Deli Nation,

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

Kudos to punk rock hell raisers BIG UPS (pictured and streaming) for winning the poll and - with it - the cover of our Spring 2014 issue!

Thumbs up to wicked avant-indie trio Celestial Shore (already featured on our mag's cover last summer), and to quirky electro-soul-pop band Wet, our record of the month back in October.

Here is how it all went down: first, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then we polled a list of 15+ NYC scene expert (our jury) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers. 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 subtelties 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 NYC produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!
