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



Bryce Cashman @ SPiN (9/15)

Sofar Sound Chicago released a new video this week and it features Bryce Cashman performing his song “Salem”.

Cashman made some waves back in July when he released a fantastic single called “Red Velvet” that featured Miss Alex White from White Mystery.

You can catch Bryce Cashman opening for White Mystery and Absolutely Not on Sept. 15th as part of Riot Pong at SPiN (344 North State).


Liska Steele @ Neverhouse (9/22)

Back in June, Liska Steele released a surprising new single and New Trash directed video called “All My Dealers”. Both the video and the song are fun but brash and slightly aggressive indie pop. It is hard to tell if Steele is mocking Tove Lo or aspiring to be her, but it is extremely enjoyable nonetheless.

You can catch Lisa Steele as part of Circus Tour: Chicago at Neverhouse (3519 W. McLean) on Sept. 22nd with Drama Moth, Headache, and UaZit.



Hardcore band Porcupine is preparing to release a new EP called “Zomia” on October 1st. The band released the EP’s first single “Masochist” last week and it is a force to be reckoned with.

The release event for this EP will take place on December 21st at The Waiting Room in Naperville.


Bitchin Bajas Box Set

Bitchin Bajas (Cooper Crain, Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye) have released the first single, "Consciousness 1”, from their forthcoming 7 CD Box Set, Rebajas, which will be released on Sept. 28th via Drag City. This is collection takes you through the trio’s full catalog and back again, including their sides of three split records. It is almost 7 hours of music!

You can catch Bitchin Bajas at Sleeping Village on October 30th with TALsounds.


Crazy Bread "Drug Facts"

Crazy Bread is the collaboration of Ryley Walker and Max Allison (of Good Willsmith), and they are preparing to release their debut EP called “Vocoder Divorce” on Sept. 21st via Astral Spirits. The project was recorded live on one day back in March of 2017. This is the height of DIY lo-fi being recorded without overdubs with just guitar and cassette deck. 

Below you can stream the EP’s first single “Drug Facts”, and from the sound of this track, this is an unqiuly expiremental project from both musicians.
