Portland's Best in Psych and Shoegaze: Zozma and Cat Hoch

Our more trippy genre poll, psych and shoegaze, ran gazed out slow fuzz with the strange visuals psychedelia forces your mind to make. The two winners all of you felt rocked 2016 honestly come as no surprise, since they've been packing venues and mesmerized crowds all throughout the last year. Big congratulations go out to Zozma and Cat Hoch! Both of these names are of course familiar in the Deli Portland world, because our Deli readers have brought them to the top before.

We've thought of Zozma as one of the best psych acts in Portland for awhile now. All of you voted them as our Artist of the Month back in September of last year, so seeing them as the winner of our readers' poll solidifies their stance as the rulers of our spiritual psych world.

This also isn't the first Deli success Cat Hoch and her band have seen with the Deli either. She came out on top entirely in 2015, when she was voted the Best Emerging Artist of that year. From opening up for Ride to commanding even bigger stages, Cat Hoch and her talented group of musicians aren't stopping anytime soon.

Ahsh Eff crafts mutli-layered throwback hip hop with new single "Kozart"

Ahsh Eff's growly drawl is 2017’s greatest throwback.

When Ahsh starts rapping it’s easy to get lost in her posturing. Lines like “Glowed up, feeling like I’m Sosa,” come off as clever plays on Hip Hop cliches. It’s not until you realize that Ahsh is actually a character created by the artist (actually named Lisa) that you get really dialed into the brilliance of the performance.  It’s meta-rap replete with money green hair and eyebrows.  She’s playing the role of a fifteen year old girl who is completely enraptured with the swagger of gangbanging staring at posters on her wall, emphatically chanting “GANG! GANG! GANG!”  Ahsh Eff is one to watch this year as she continues to deconstruct her thug.-brokeMC

Todavía releases dreamy new single "Our Luck"

Todavía take you on a romantic, though potentially tragic, excursion with "Our Luck". The project of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Rhyan Riesgo, the track provides a dark shading of heavily textured and lustruous sounds as she succumbs deeper and deeper into a toxic spell. Its' surging guitars and seraphic tones are really something for the ears to behold, considerig Riesgo came up with this all on her own.

"Our Luck" is currently streaming on all major platforms. Listen to the track below.

The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Psych Pop/Rock Artist: The Dove & The Wolf!

After compiling the jurors', readers'/fans' and writers' votes for The Deli Philly's Best Emerging Psych Pop/Rock artists, congrats to The Dove & The Wolf! Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard had already started making a name for themselves under the moniker with the release of their debut self-titled EP and and tours with Rachael Yamagata and Butch Walker. After a transformative experience, while being in Paris during the Bataclan terrorist attack, the ladies were eventually able to renew their visas and return home to Philly. Inspired by their experiences during those troubling times, the duo eventually teamed up with Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs) and Nick Krill (The Spinto Band) to record the moving I Don't Know What To Feel. And what was originally self-released as a five-song EP has now expanded to seven, and will be reissued on March 24 via Fat Possum so this victory looks to be just the start of what should be another memorable year for The Dove & The Wolf - hopefully in a much better way.

Runner-up Japanese Breakfast and honorable mention recipients Carroll are also worthy of your adoration, but also check out the rest of our talented nominees that made this year's list! (Photo by Sidney Bensimon)
