This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Some emerging NYC bands playing Northside on Thursday.

We'll take the opportunity given us by Northside to highlight a few emerging local artists we haven't blogged about in some time - or not at all. Browsing through the list of bands playing tonight, we notice that NYC Kenrda Morris will be at Matchless with Aabaraki (pictured, song streaming below), two acts dedicated to bringing soul back to the heights it deserves (here's an article about the Soul Revival in NYC by the way).

On the other side of the musical genres' spectrum, noise masters Yvette will challenge (and probably destroy some) ears at Muchmore's, headlining a bill of droney bands that includes Courtship Ritual (good name! streaming below), and electro experimenter Alan Watts.

Semi-French pop treat Slowdance (song streaming below) will play Public Assembly's back room with two fully French bands (by the way, now that the main room is closed, Pub. Ass. is throwing shows in a pretty cool room upstairs). Spike Hill on the other hand will host three Brooklyn bands we covered inside out: ARMSConveyor and Miniboone, and one we never heard about: Chris Mills.

Grand Street's mainstay dive Trash Bar will host loud garage New Jersey based outfit The Everymen and rising indie crooner Tyburn Saint, together with this weird NYC band called The Cowmen - what the heck is this, zombie-country? Some imaginative heads at work there!

285 Kent will surely have a packed show featuring Ava Luna, Twin Sister, Julian Lynch and other great bands from out of town, but these are artists on the verge of not being emerging anymore... Glasslands on the other hand has a DJ only night with some local stars behind the booth - but we don't care about DJs...
