Deli "Best of New England Indie Rock Act" XR Tabs Play Aurora Providence 3/22

Earlier this year, experimental indie-rock trio XR Tabs was chosen by our panel of jurors as New England's Best Emerging Indie Rock Act of 2016.  Their unique, ambient soundscapes create a visceral response from the listener, fostering feelings of uncertainty and discovery.  Their new material is a collection of lo-fi science experiments gone right. Experience them live at Aurora Providence on 3/22 with Jesse the Tree, featuring photography by Ky Van Seltzer and artwork by Madison Eva.  -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
