From the digital submissions: Young Lincoln's new LP 'Bethel, ME'

In their newest LP, ‘Bethel, ME,’ Connecticut-based four-piece Young Lincoln capture the essence of a New England upbringing (sweet, with a bit of obligatory angst)—their lyrics aren’t overly sentimental, maintaining a roughness around the edges in songs like “three years” (“Ten beers in I always think I’ve had enough / to have one more… / I miss the way my parents sang at night.”) Lead singer Andy King’s vocals also add a grungey tone that fits them more comfortably in pop punk than anything else, giving an edge to even the most vulnerable lines (“I still watch you sleep sometimes.”) - Lilly Milman

Q&A with Connecticut Punks The Oddbodies

The Oddbodies are an alternative punk band from Connecticut that makes dirty, distorted, guitar-heavy punk songs with an indie rock twist. At their highest intensity, they sound similar to '90s grunge classics like Soundgarden, while their more relaxed numbers prove reminiscent of alternative rock staples like Wavves. Hailing from New Haven, the outfit has found a way to stay inspired and active in relatively quiet surroundings. The Deli sat down with this underdog group to chat and get their full scoop.

From the digital submissions: Humble Digs releases feel-good folk EP "A Love Song"

Amherst-based Humble Digs describe themselves as “a non-stop feel-good machine.” This is definitely true for their EP A Love Song, where they marry folk rock with psychedelic undertones. The band is unapologetically easy-listening, crafting songs with soft vocals and often jazzy instrumentals (especially in songs like “Better Game,” which has a substantial intro before any vocals come in). After a brief stay at Disc Jam Music Festival in Stephentown, NY, they will be returning to New England to play at the Radio Bean in VT on July 22nd.-Lily Milman

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
