The Loom is one of the most interesting NYC based Alt-Folk groups. Their dark songs are blessed by an impeccably sober immagination, which is perfectly matched by Ben Stamper's imagery in this video of the song "In Your Doldrums." The band is currently on a west coast tour, they'll be back in NYC in April.
The Deli Magazine was born in NYC's Attorney Street in 2004, in the shape of a print issue with a then unknown band on its cover, called Grizzly Bear. Ths NYC blog came in 2005, then the SF one in 2006, and then 9 more in the following years. The Deli is focused on the coverage of emerging bands and solo artists with a 100% local focus - no exceptions!
