NYC folksters Whale Belly release album “I Was Once a Bird”

Brooklyn foursome Whale Belly kicked off 2013 right, with the release of their second album, “I Was Once a Bird,” on January 7. Singer Todd Bogin’s vocals that are reminiscent of a younger, rawer Van Morrison, but his band tends to experiment with more intricate arrangements, and an ubiquitous violin that brings to mind the sound of Camper Van Beethoven. Whale Belly’s songs have a definite sense of humor, but the lightheartedness of songs like “Selling Sh*t On Craiglist Just to Pay the Rent” or "Everything Causes Cancer" (streaming) still evokes genuine charm.  Devon Antonetti

This song was added to our SoundCloud playlist of the best emerging NYC folk artists - listen to it here.

Best of NYC Poll - JURORS' VOTE: Foxygen, Spirit Family Reunion, DIIV + more

This year 28 NYC "scene experts" helped us with our Best of NYC Poll 2012 for Emerging Artists by choosing their 3 favorite up and coming NYC acts. These jurors are comprised of local venue agents and other industry people who work with many local bands throughout the year (full list coming soon). Their votes this year produced a list of 68 artists, which means that - as always - most jurors voted for different bands. But some bands appeared more thans once in the "ballots": below we compiled a list of the artists who accumulated more points through the jurors vote only. Kudos to Foxygen (already on the cover of our 2012 CMJ issue) for getting the top spot.

The Best of NYC 2012 Readers and Fans' Poll - including all the nominees - will start in a few days - stay tuned (since we have one of these polls happening in each scene we cover, we need to schedule them carefully to avoid to overload our server - thanks for your patience!).

NYC Year End Poll - Indie Pop Submission: Dalton Ties with Cultfever in 1st Place

Any fan of the summer (or global warming) will immediately latch on to Dalton. This is the scrappy, thrown together energy of Brooklyn's native son Nate Harar. A man with a deep, abiding belief in the power of the sun to work out whatever kinks are found in his guitar jams. 'Breaker' might not blast off, but it floats along on a breeze knowing it'll get to its destination in due time. We are looking forward to a full release, but if the two tracks up on his Bandcamp are an indication of things to come… we can't wait to play in this warm-weather sandbox - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
