Ethel Cee Supporting The Leeway Foundation at The Rotunda Feb. 3

One-woman wrecking machine Ethel Cee is coming through The Rotunda tonight. Ethel Cee is a utility rapper who can offer something for everyone. She swags, intimidates, flows like water but can throw down a biting verse on the flip of a switch. Her LP Dirty Samples out on Bee Eater highlights Cee’s commanding vocals over an array of backing beats from chopped up oldies samples to electro thumpers. Her beats, done by Fel Sweetenberg, are not to be overlooked. The elaborate collages that change and grow as Cee’s lyrical persona does are the perfect compliment to her based rhymes. Along for the ride is Camae from hip-hop/punk experimentalists The Mighty Paradocs. They’ll be performing for free in honor of The Leeway Foundation, a Philly-based organization that supports women and transgender artists in the Delaware Valley who create social change through their artwork. Don’t miss out! The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut St., 7pm, Free, All Ages - Adam G.

Young Man wins The Deli's Best of Chicago 2010 Emerging Artist Poll!

Chicagoans and Chicagoers!

After a seizure inducing 2 months of polling and voting and churning numbers, we can finally say: "HABEMUS POLL WINNER!"

Congrats to mellow psych folker Young Man, who sealed the win thanks to 2 top jurors votes (3 points each), and to Dastardly and White Mistery, who placed second and third thanks to their fans vote. Here's a picture of the Young Man also known as Colin Caulfield.



Thanks to all the jurors and the bands and the fans who helped us put together this list of artists. Please don't take it too seriously (but not too lightly either!), we see it as a fun, playful way to give exposure to deserving emerging local artists.

For the Psych lovers - Strange Shapes open for Delicate Steve on 02.05

Strange Shapes, formed in 2009, is a new Brooklyn based project delivering - as its name suggests - music that isn't excatly "ordinary". Strong psychedelic influences referring directly to the early UK genre pioneers blend with a fully electric avant-pop approach reminiscent of Animal Collective, but with some added unpredictability that bears jazzy elements. The band will be opening for Delicate Steve at his CD release party on February 5th at Public Assembly. Check out the opening track of the band's new EP "Star Charts" streaming here.

CD review: The Paparazzi - "ROCOCO"

Led by Cat Power bassist Erik Paparazzi, The Paparazzi is a delightfully psychedelic pop rock project chock full of freewheeling melodies and lighthearted wordplay. This collective’s nine-track affair ROCOCO showcases a love for the soulful rock sounds of the 1960’s (“Hi”) with a discernible Beatles fetish and a drowsy indie rock sensibility (“My O My”). Instrumentally lush and boldly experimental, The Paparazzi makes quirky daydream pop that is fresh from the dryer soft and warm. www.seriousbusinessrecords.com -Mike SOS

The Deli’s Philly Record Label of the Year 2010: Ian Records

It was a tight race again this year with one vote separating two fine labels, but the nod went to Ian Records for The Deli’s Philly Record Label of the Year 2010. It was hard to ignore what Ian Records has been doing for the local indie music scene. If you are not familiar with the Philly-based record label, it’s run by Ian Galloway who also works at the record store Beautiful World Syndicate. He specializes in releasing only music from Philly artists on vinyl. Galloway has helped material see the light of day on proper format from local artists like Party Photographers, Creepoid, and Far-Out Fangtooth. All of whom were nominated by one of our jurors in this year’s Best of Philly Emerging Artists Poll, which is pretty damn impressive. Congrats Ian Records! But we’d also like to acknowledge and thank Richie Records/TestosterTunes for simply releasing kick-ass tunes. Now, we know owner Richie Charles couldn’t give two shits about any awards, but maybe sometimes it’s nice to know that other people think you are badass too. Cheers to both labels for all their support of the local music scene! - The Deli Staff
