June 2014
Thomas Comerford
"II
"
mp3

Thomas Comerford has spent the last three years preparing for his second solo album, II, the follow up 2011's Archive + Spiral. The result is a thoughtful, introspective album filled folk and western sounds and themes. Most of the eight tracks are built from acoustic guitar and deep, rich vocals. The sound and style could be compared to Mike Johnson. Several tracks, "Silt and Dust", "Chrysalis", "Prefer Not To", and others, then build with twang and organic instrumentation into small southern symphonies. This is bedroom meets barroom but at times it swells into larger realms. This is most apparent in "Done and Done" with its lush full band sound. II will be released by Strange Weather Records on June 10th.

Deli Best of Chicago 2012 - Open Submission Results!

Deli Best of Chicago 2012 - Open Submission Results!

The results are in from the Open Submissions stage for our Chicago Year End Poll for Emerging Artists. All of the submissions were ranked by Deli Editors from other scenes and the list of acts that have advanced to our Readers’/Fans’ Poll phase are below.

A quick reminder that these list are not final nor complete - most of the bands accessing the final stage of the poll are currently being chosen by our local "scene expert" jurors - we'll publish the complete list of nominees very soon.

We would like to thank all of the talented artists who submitted. It was our largest Open Submissions pool yet, and certainly a testament to how many rad acts we have in Chicago.
