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



Michael Beharie & Teddy Rankin-Parker "Paper Tiger"

New York’s Michael Beharie and Chicago’s Teddy Rankin-Parker have joined forces to release their debut album, A Heart From your Shadow, via Warsaw label Mondoj. The duo met over a decade ago at Oberlin College and have carved their own unique musical careers, but always wanted to collaborate at some point. What they have created is an adventure in experimental, ambient, and inventive music and sound.

The album latest single is “Paper Tiger” and is accompanied by an animated video by Eduardo Enrique Meza.


Foreign City

Foreign City is Synth Rock sounds of Nicolas Tiparescu. Back in April he released his debut single “What To Do With You”. The sound reminds us of mid-2000’s band’s like The Bravery or We Are Scientists, and we are definitely on the look out for more from Foreign City.


Advance Base "True Love Death Dream"

Advance Base (a.k.a. Owen Ashworth) has released the first single, "True Love Death Dream”, from his forthcoming LP, Animal Companionship. The LP is set to be released on September 21st via Run For Cover and Orindal Records.

The track itself is filled with electronics, synths, and Owen’s signature crooning and melancholy lyrics.

You can catch Advance Base at The Hideout on July 26th with Brendan Losch and Gia Margaret (Album release).


Pitchfork Preview: The Curls “Tidal Wave”

The Curls released a new single yesterday called “Tidal Wave”. This single was released to be a “summer banger” and accomplishes its goal. This is lazy poolside or beachside instant classic.

You can catch The Curls playing “Tidal Wave” and kicking off Pitchfork Music Festival on July 20th.


Lala Lala "Destroyer"

Hardly Art just announced that they have signed Lala Lala and has released the video for their new single “Destroyer”. The single is taken from their forthcoming album The Lamb, which will be released on September 28th.

Lala Lala is primarily the work of London-raised and Chicago-based musician Lilli West. Over the last few years her supporting cast has evolved, and on this album she is joined by Emily Kempf (of Dehd and Vail) on bass/backup vocals and Ben Leach (of Drool) on drums.
