Best of New England Folk/Soul Reader's Poll: Frank Viele

 The Deli readers have spoken, choosing Connecticut songwriter Frank Viele as the best emerging New England folk/soul artist of 2016.  A cocktail of classic soul/RnB, alt-rock, and a dash of country twang, Viele earns a place alongside artists like Ray Lamontagne and The Black Crowes, keeping the roots alive and well.  Check out the dates for Frank's current US tour here and stay tuned for more poll results! -Brian Varneke

Cardinals Transform With Release of Acoustic EP Aftertaste

 After a whirlwind year of recording and touring, Boston pop-punkers Tighticus Finch have flown from the nest as Cardinals.  Equipped with a new acoustic EP, Aftertaste, duo Emily Ronna and CJ Rarela are putting the proverbial (and literal) band back together, harnessing the energy of Finch and the mature emotional content that comes with a year of new experiences.  The highlight track for us is "Of Montreal", a ballad that puts Ronna's vocals to the test (which she passes).  Check them out live at Bungalow Bar & Grill in Manchester, NH with Woven in Hiatus, Paper Monsters, Hours North, and The Grebes. -Brian Varneke

Jack Romanov Releases New EP "The Smoking Room Sessions: I"

The environment in which an album is recorded can often have a strong effect on a band's music.  It can also, on occasion, alter the perception of the listener.  Such is the case for Boston indie-rockers Jack Romanov in their new EP, The Smoking Room Sessions: I, recorded, mixed, and mastered in an East Boston funeral home.  The captivating sound of the quartet is amplified, creating a mixed atmosphere of curiosity, melancholy, and introspection.  The first of four EPs to be released in the coming weeks, volume 1 is enough for us to pay close attention to future output from the band.  Check out the album link below and let us know what you think. -Brian Varneke

Best of New England Indie Rock/Pop Artist: Tall Teenagers, Mokita, XR Tabs

Deli Readers!

The results are in for our year-end Best Emerging New England Indie Rock Artist poll.  The popular vote has elected Tall Teenagers from Providence, RI as our 2016 Deli Readers' champions for the Indie Rock/Pop category.  They are a name we've been hearing a lot this past year and we are excited to see what 2017 has in store for them.  We would also like to give a shout-out to Boston garage-rockers Mokita for giving them a run for their money.

In addition, the points accumulated through votes cast by our panel of jurors, and a third position in the readers' poll, crowned XR Tabs and their brand of experimental indie-pop as the Best of New England in this category. Check out their new single "Wet Fire for Edison the Unclean" and see what all the hype is about.

As always, we'd like to thank all of our artists, jurors, and readers for participating in this year's polls.  Stay tuned and vote for all of our remaining genre polls! -Brian Varneke
