Live: The Dares @ Troubadour

“Hello my name is Martin,” said bassist of 3-piece band The Dares as he mingled with the girls in the front row of their set Sunday night at the Troubadour. If they're new to you, the Whittier-based trio landed a major label contract with Jive records before they even finished high school and scored a gig at the Winter Olympics Torch Event in 2002. 

They even hold a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the first concert to take place simultaneously in two places at the same time. After Sunday night's Troub performance, it’s easy to see why they're still around: Their traditional pop-punk is actually refreshing from the genre's takeover of whiny vocals from the past decade. The Dares are energy, but more so on the live side than in their canned recordings. -Kimberly Brown

AM Rings in the Holiday Season with Charlie Brown Favorite

Pretend for just one moment that all the polluted ash falling outside is snow and that your Starbucks seasonal beverage is actually home made. Then listen to AM's cover of "Christmas Time Is Here," which is an updated version of the Charlie Brown favorite, with magic and happy ooziness still intact. It's a part of AM's new holiday EP "Holiday, Happiness and Cheer," which The Deli highly recommends you purchase here.

Globes on Remote: Hooks with intellect

Pop music this rich and quirky is always notable. Globes on Remote are freaks of melody and bold texture, with nods to "So"-era Peter Gabriel to contemporaries like Arcade Fire and the big landscapes of My Morning Jacket. While Globes on Remote's sound is mostly groove based, it's the decoration and fresh vocals that are incredibly hook-worthy. To be "catchy" and retain a kind of mystery is a hard continuum to meet.

The Deli Charts (see example on the left column) are a database of artists organized by region, genre and, of course, popularity.

Rather than just a popularity contest, our charts are thought as a service to allow bands, live show promoters and also music fans to find new promising acts. In this DIY musical era, the Deli's Charts provide an easy and fun way for emerging artists to find like-minded bands to network with.

Unlike similar charts implemented by other websites, The Deli's ones are extremely reliable in terms of rankings, which are calculated using data from the outside world - not internal artist profile counting.
