Digital submissions: Grungy garage band Butthole delivers crude fun in self-titled LP

If you take issue with new music is that's too clean and polite, then Butthole is the answer. With a self-titled album that contains a track called “I Went to High School and Graduated” ending in the repetition of “Bitch! Whore! Slut!,” it becomes clear that the band is not scared of pushing boundaries. This is what makes Butthole unique—they’re not one of those indie bands passing themselves off as punk. They’re the real thing, and they know it. Butthole is currently on a brief mid west tour. Check out our favorite song from last year's "Secret EP," entitled "She Boop She Boo Thang," streaming below. - Lilly Milman

Artist to Watch: Shit Giver

The artful dynamics of trio Shit Giver leave an indelible impact. On their debut full-length, entitled ...Life, the band's knotty guitar lines and undulating bass grooves propel forward with an urgency that sounds like a more refined take on hardcore punk. Led by Preston Mendell's mirthless sing-speak, there's an assaulting intensity to their cutting fury that does seek to modernize the post-collegiate malaise of early to mid-nineties post-punk. It's a remarkable step forward from their promising demo recordings, as it perfectly exemplifies how they direct that raw vitriol with a trenchant intelligence that cannot be ignored.

...Life is out now on their official bandcamp page. Though they're currently touring the Pacific Northwest, Shit Giver will be back soon to play a hometown show at the Bootleg on July 15.

You can help the band celebrate the release on July 8th at Lincoln Hall with Marrow and Soft Candy.





Quiet Giant Releases New EP, You're In Heaven

 Last week, Bethel, CT rockers Quiet Giant dropped their latest EP, You're In Heaven, a five-song odyssey that feels more like a multi-movement work than a standard release.  Beginning with the bright, bouncy "Heaven" and continuing all the way through the heavier, ambient "Knee of the Curve", the EP connects through a 20 minute crescendo, an interesting narrative thread that keeps the record intact as an artistic idea, while keeping the autonomy of each track as an individual concept.  Pick up the EP below and catch Quiet Giant at BoroughFest in Newtown, CT on 5/27 with Deer Leap, Perennial, and more. -Brian Varneke





Deli Premiere: Boketto The Wolf Loses Their Cool With New Single

 You may remember Boston alt-folk/rockers, Boketto the Wolf, from our coverage of their debut EP, Sleepless back in December.  Since we left them, they have certainly been busy, with a SXSW Texas tour and a brand new single debuting today, here at The Deli.  "Losing My Cool" is another shining example of what brought Boketto to our attention in the first place:  unique, catchy, yet emotional songwriting and vocals, mixed with dynamic instrumentals, never overstated.  Recorded at Power Station New England by Evan Bakke (Pinwheel, Prinze George, Joss Stone), it is an ode to young relationships, an anthem for anyone who has tried to play it cool and failed.  Hit the link below to check out "Losing My Cool" and catch Boketto the Wolf at Thunder Road on June 6/3 (The Boston Pride Kickoff) or Midway Cafe 6/20. -Brian Varneke
