Best New Band 2014: The Ballots

A peek at music-based democracy in action.

ural thomas2014's Best New Band: Ural Thomas & the Pain. - James Rexroad.

Every year, in the spirit of transparency—and to make it perfectly clear that Best New Band is a poll, not an arbitrary list—we publish the ballots of every Best New Band voter. What follows is that list of voters names, titles and the bands or artists that they casted votes for. If the votes are numbered, that is because the voter chose to rank their nominees. If they are not numbered, the voter chose to weight each vote equally. We offer voters the opportunity to conceal their identity, which is the reason some ballots are listed as "anonymous." 

As my predecessor often pointed out, there may be imperfections in this list, as copying and pasting a little over 200 entries is, frankly, a bit mind-numbing. But then, the entire Best New Band process isn't an exact science. Every year, our voting pool grows—nearly 600 went out this year; of course, not everyone returns a ballot, which is why the total number of votes fluctuates—but does it ever represent the true breadth of the Portland music scene? Probably not. It's a big, wonderfully eclectic community, after all. But it's something we aim to improve each year. Hopefully, next year we'll have an even bigger and more diverse list of contributors, to make this as accurate a litmus test as possible.

In an effort for even fuller disclosure, I have included the full text of the instructions sent to each voter, to give you an idea of how the poll is tabulated. If you are a voter and notices any mistakes pertaining to your particular ballot, please let me know by emailing bestnewband [at] wweek.com.

Thanks for reading and, if you're name is on the list below, for your participation!

The Letter

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 2014, 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. 

Here's what we need from you (please read all this carefully): 

Click the following link and follow the directions carefully: [POLL REMOVED]. 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 REPLYING BY THE DEADLINE: THURSDAY, APRIL 10 at 11:59 PM. 

When all the ballots have been collected, we will assign points for each band you voted for. 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. 

We will need your full name and your role in the music community. This is so important I'm going to use caps: IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR NAME AND TITLE IN YOUR FROM, YOUR VOTES WILL NOT BE COUNTED. Your votes will be published online, but if you would like your votes to remain anonymous, we can do that. Just let us know by responding to this email. 

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

Other important info:

— If you received this email at more than one email address, please only respond once, with one set of votes. 

— If this ballot arrived at a general email address for a record store, recording studio, bar, etc., please do not respond with more than two ballots from two separate employees who identify themselves as such.

— Previous BNB finalists are allowed to submit individual ballots per band member, as long as each is identified as required.

— If you have questions about any of this, you can email Matt at msinger@wweek.com

Thanks so much! We get really excited at the chance to put local music on the cover of our paper each year, and we discover a lot of new music thanks to your votes. Thanks for all you do, all year-round, to strengthen this wonderful music community. 

Sincerely, 

Matthew Singer
