Best New Band 2010 Ballots! And the Winners!

bnbAll week we've been asked about the results for the 2010 Best New Band poll. And all week we've held our lips tight...until now!

The list:

1. Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside (107.5 points)
2. Typhoon (94 points)
3. Deelay Ceelay (74 points)
4. Hosannas (59.5 points)
5. Wampire (56 points)
6. Operative (55 points)
7. The Miracles Club (54 points)
8. Aan (51 points)
9. Atole (38 points)
10. Red Fang (37.5 points)

And here's the email we sent out with instructions and how we score the ballots:
Dear Esteemed Member of the Portland Music Community,

Congratulations! You have been selected by our diligent team of local music scientists to take part in Willamette Week's Best New Band Poll 2010, where the Portland music community looks back over the last year and crowns one group, solo artist or DJ the greatest new talent in town.

As you may remember, Explode Into Colors took last year's poll in a tight race with Nurses and Blind Pilot. We had a rad show at Berbati's Pan and it totally ruled.

So, here's what we need from you (please read all this crap carefully):
Email us a list of the top 5 Portland-based acts you've discovered this year. Again, you can vote for any music-making entity, be it a band, solo performer, DJ or an MC. You can rank them one through five, or give no rankings if you want to spread your points equally. If you can't think of five new acts that have made an impact on you in the last year, then just send us however many you like, whether it's four, three, two or just one. "New," obviously, is relative (just like "band" and even "best"). Don't stress out on the wording too much. But DO stress on getting us this email by Sunday, April 4.

When all the ballots have been collected, we will assign points for each band you voted for based on how you ranked them (No. 1 = 5 pts., No. 2 = 4 pts., No. 3 = 3 pts., etc.). If you don't rank your votes by numbering each band, the points will be divided and distributed equally among your selections. We will then add up the points from all the ballots and come up with a top 10, which will be published in an upcoming issue of Willamette Week along with profiles and photos and other such fanfare. The number one band will appear on the cover of the paper and, if available, will headline WW's Best New Band showcase.

You can vote for any band you like, as long as it is not a band you play in (you can vote for bands you work with-as long as you're voting as a TRUE FAN and not just a profiteer).

DO NOT VOTE FOR THESE PAST WINNERS (as much as we like them all):

I'm Jesse Studenberg. I'm putting together the PDX Pop Comp for 2010 and am a former member of a "Best New Band" (PJWA). Here are 5 acts that are part of my current music life in PDX.

1) Tope - The tracks I've heard by this gentleman and his crew (Living Proof) are among the best hip-hop I've heard this year, local or otherwise. Admittedly, it's not a genre I chase as eagerly as others, as much as I enjoy what I take the time to dig into. But, my position with PDX Pop has helped broaden my respect for the hip-hop being made in town and I feel Tope's up there with the very best MCs around.

2) A Weather - Their new record is one of my most anticipated local releases. The shows I've seen over the winter have comforted me. Made me feel optimistic if I'm blue. Lazy smiles. I'd never dance at an A Weather show, in fact I've often found myself on the verge of a snooze. Not because I'm bored, but because I feel safe and happy. No one else rocks so hard so quietly.

3) ioa - I'm putting Amanda here in the middle because of the obvious conflict of interest. I'd probably put her higher, but she's more my sister than my, middle seems safe. Regardless, I wouldn't put her here if I didn't feel she truly deserved it. Every show is better than the last, and the first was miles ahead of most. It's been amazing to watch her come into her own over the last couple years, riding herd on a sizable band of equally amazing scenesters while playing music unlike anyone else in town. And that voice. Ioa's an inspiration.

4) Kelli Schaefer - When I first heard Kelli a couple years back, I immediately picked up the EP she had out and fell hard for her perfect voice and obviously belabored production. Honestly, those songs haven't aged well for me, as good as they are. That's probably more about my changing tastes than any comment on the quality of the music. But, she's got a new round out that absolutely blow my mind (see: Gone in Love/Sister K). The music she's writing now is exactly what she should have evolved to from her strong beginnings. Her live performances never fail to give me the shivahs.

5) Ocean Age - Just saw these kids for the first time a few weeks back and picked up their 'Forest' EP for 5 bucks. Here in the future I listen to it every day. It's a rare recording that can capture my attention so completely (even though that one song kinda bites a Panda Bear melody) and the live show is lovely and unique. They've definitely got their own, quite strong thing going on, comparisons aside.

1. Red Fang
I'm not really into metal, but Red Fang is metal and they kick ass!! The Prehistoric Dog video they made is one of my favorite videos, they dress up in beer can armor and battle Dungeon and Dragon nerds for control of Mt. Tabor, it's really great! Their posters are cool and they control the stage well. Everyone I know who has seen or heard them loves Red Fang!

2. Danava

3. Drats!!!
Drats!!! is one of the oldest working bands in Portland and they are always aiming to entertain, They haven't ever bent to what you would expect a Portland band to be. They did a really cool rock opera of Over The Edge a couple of years back, who does that these days?!?! That's pretty cool!!

4. Prize Country
They kind of make we want to get a tattoo.

5. Ro Sham Bos/Black Pussy/White Orange
I put these bands all together in one because they are all pretty much the same people mixing it up in all of these bands and I see that they have the drive to try and make some thing good happen in the scene. There could be something really good happening with these guys.
