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



The Deli Reader's Favorite: Frances Rose

Here's two ladies that know how to be emotional. Not only does duo Frances Rose rock a denim jacket for a post-grunge feel, but they also douse their mixes in an electro-dub haze of beats and loops, giving a psuedo-goth feel to their stories of heartbreak and trying romantic adventures. Track 'Vampire' is especially revealing, as only two women that have known each other all their lives are capable of. Frances Rose won our Reader's Best of 2012 poll for emerging bands. - Mike Levine(@Goldnuggets)


NYC Band On The Rise: Skaters Go To Austin

Skaters excitedly pronounces their name repeatedly on landing on their nondescript website. But once you've seen the pizza-loving video for 'Schemers,' you'll get a better idea for the sense of humor the trio is capable of. Shooting toy guns through confetti-soaked backgrounds, it's obvious this is a band looking for a party. And with this much energy, there can't be one far behind. The band was selected as The Deli writers' best band of 2012, and recently signed a deal with a major label - they are definitely going to be one of the emerging acts not to miss at SXSW 2013. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


Upcoming Release: The Secret History

Haven’t hopped on The Secret History bandwagon yet? Then you better start listening before their upcoming album release. Comprised of cult songwriter Michael Grace Jr. as well as other members of My Favorite, as well as vocalists Jaime Allison Babic and Lisa Ronson (daughter of glam rocker Mick Ronson) The Secret History has made a graceful transition from My Favorite’s psych pop antics to their current sound, while maintaining a trademark whimsical playfulness. Their debut album “The World That Never Was” in 2010 gained them praise from Allmusic.com, Spectrum Culture, and was even listed as one of Kip Berman’s (of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart) favorite records of the year. We’re pretty excited to see what they’ve got coming out this June. Mark your calendars, the release party will be on 06.05 at Glasslands. - Lucy Sherman
