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



Deep Earth

The trio know as Deep Earth is back with their first studio release. Armed with their syncopated and harmonious soundscapes, the trio is looking to put Chicago into a trance with House of Mighty. This cassette is now available their the Minn. label Moon Glyph, and is a spacey psychedelic trip through the Chicago underground. This sound fits perfect with what we have been hearing from other like-minded musicians like Gatekeeper and even the recent release from Netherfriends. The label has released 150 copies of this cassette so grab yours today. Also you can expect a split 7" with Deep Earth and the Minneapolis group Food Pyramid later this year.


Hollows on Daytrotter

Hollows appeared on Daytrotter over the weekend and performed four tracks including my favorite Hollows song "Shadows In The Dark".


ExportTV from Archie Powell & The Exports

Archie Powell & The Exports are releasing a series of covers this month in video through youtube. The first two covers are "The Ballad of John and Yoko" by The Beatles and Devo's "Girl U Want". The band is clearly having a good time, but still these are quality covers.
