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

Go to the old Top 300 charts



Frances Cone soars in The Deli's Charts, plays Baby's All Right on 11.07

We go a long way with Brooklyn songwriter Frances Cone - she played one of our SXSW shows back in 2013 - and it's great to see her climb our 'NYC New Bands With Buzz" top ten chart on this same page. After her 2013 debut album 'Come Back,' her releases have been somewhat sporadic, but high in quality. Earlier in 2016, her intimately atmospheric, slow burning single 'Arizona,' caused a stir on Spotify, approaching 4 million plays, and opening up a series of show opportunities in reputable venues all along the east coast, including a show at Music Hall of Williasburg on September 30th. Frances and her band's next show will be at Baby's All Right on 11.07.

New Music Video: "Moody" - Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans take advantage of a beautiful backdrop, where the the ocean meets the sky, in their latest video for the single "Moody". Shot and directed by Bob Sweeney, the four-piece indulge in a lazy day at the shore before taking an odd, fully-clothed dip. You can ask them what this video is all about this evening when they headline Boot & Saddle. (Photo by Rachel Del Sordo)

Brooklyn's RIPS plays Trans Pecos on 11/05, readies release of debut album

To some extent, it's very reassuring to see how many emerging bands in this city are still inspired by the sound of post-punk, a musical wave that developed the DIY attitude of the punk musical revolution in a more creative direction. Brooklyn's RIPS, whose debut, upcoming album was produced by Austin Brown of NYC post punk masters Parquet Court, has two singles available for streaming, and they showcase a band with solid potential. Speedy track "Delay,' in particular, with its intriguing blend of guitars and a bass line that's a pop gem by itself, boasts both attitude and good songwriting chops, while 'Losing II' is a simpler track that sounds like a homage to seminal NYC legends like the Velvet Underground and Television, artists that in many ways anticipated the post punk movement. RIPS is scheduled to play Trans-Pecos on November 5th.

New RFA EP Available for Streaming & Download

New Music Video: "Wish We Talked Still" - Hello Shark

Below is a new music video for the single, "Wish We Talked Still," by Hello Shark, a.k.a. Lincoln Halloran. Directed by Free Cake For Every Creature's Katie Bennett, the footage was shot on Super 8 film, casting a reflective, daydream haze over the city of Philadelphia and the video's cast of characters. The sentimental visual and audio coupling makes us long to reconnect with lost loves, though we all know that some things are best buried in the past in the back of our memories. You can find "Wish We Talked Still" on Hello Shark's latest LP, Delicate, out now via Orindal Records. (Photo by Abi Reimold)
