Wildhoney plays show with fellow Baltimore band/Deli artist of the month nominee Big Mouth TONIGHT at The Penthouse

Quick, let your hot date know there's a change in plans tonight because at 9:30 at The Penthouse Baltimore's total dreamboat Wildhoney will be playing a show on a diverse lineup with bands from Baltimore, North Carolina, and Britain. It's kind of your chance for one of those summer of love dance scenes you've always sneered at in movies but secretly practiced in your bedroom. But if you don't catch them tonight before they continue on their U.S. tour with Spook School, you'll have more chances when they play DC9 Nightclub in DC on 6/25 and Metro Gallery in Baltimore 10/07 (plenty of time to plan for that one). Wildhoney's latest 3-song record, "17 Forever", gets pretty and gritty with the band's swooning, atmospheric blend of lo-fi shoegaze and post-punk. The title fits a collection of songs that glitter and brood through a teenage girl's daydream. Airy vocal harmonies delightfully steer through surrounding storms of percussion, warm fuzz/bass, distancing reverb, and slicing guitars. They've been killing it in the past few months : a tour with Whirr, a new music video, and they've announced their next EP is due out later this year. Keep at it guys, we'll be keeping an ear out!

Frankie and Jimmy @ This Ain't Hollywood

This 2 piece plays stripped down bluesy folk tunes that come straight from the garage. They released their album "Scream the Blues" in 2013 and it's nothing but fun to listen to. The first tune "Beautiful City" is a dirty blues song mainly utilizing a just kick drum and harmonica. It's quick and to the point. It sets the tone for what's to come. That's when they fire into "Let It Rock" which is a fast paced guitar rocker that's basically a 2 piece Johnny B. Goode. I have heard and seen the name Frankie & Jimmy around town but I had no idea their tunes were this cool. They remind me a lot of King Khan & BBQ Show which is a 2-piece garage oldies type band as well. Frankie & Jimmy hit up This Aint Hollywood on Friday. -Kris"Big City"Gies

Pet Sun -Never Quit

These garage fellas from Hamilton have dropped the first tune from their upcoming album in video form! Pet Sun is all about the fuzz. Fuzzy guitars and now they're eating fuzzy pudding. This video for "Never Quit" was directed by Billy Moon. It has some wild green screen action, trippy effects, the aforementioned fuzzy pudding, a band-eating witch and of course a badass headbanger of a song. This tune absolutely forces to move your head with the simple yet convincing guitar riffs. Their new record is due for release later this year and it's going to bring the house down. For now you can download their EP "Feel Like I'm Going Away" but do yourself a favor and see them live on Thursday May 28 at This Ain't Hollywood. They're taking off down to the States after that and they may never come back. I hear the witch is still after them...-Kris "Big City"Gies

Feeling Great About the Release of "Cheerlessness" by Institute

Oh yes, new Institute day is a good day. I've been wanting to post the heavy jangle, effects-lite punk shit that is Institute since I became editor of the Austin Deli, but their (no-holds-barred good) last EP Salt came out in October of 2014, which was just barely, annoyingly out of the range to be considered "news."

Today though, with a fist-shake of gritty happiness, I'm here to say that the wait is over. There is new Institute, and it's them at their fuckitall best. The new track from Sacred Bones Records is thoroughly appropriately titled "Cheerlessness," and as opposed to Salt, which often had Institute sounding like a band made up of people each about to fall apart at the seams in a really good and satisfying way, this new track is tighter and more determined.

The singing, or whatever you'd call that nicely out-of-it noise they're making, still seems like it's coming from a depressed drunk who stumbled upon a microphone just after getting hit in the head by a large human, but now he's in his third song and just doesn't even care enough to put energy into his shit until he just loses it at the end. There's true emotion of the kind the title espouses here, something you really get with the exasperated breath into the mic at the end, and that they layer that whole modern malaised man sound over a non-stop breackneck, clenched-asshole beat and wails from a guitar that sounds like it's dying is just damn good fuck the world punk. Listen below y'all, and get you a beer and a good brick wall alley slouch goin' to make it feel right. The rest of the album, called Catharsis is out June 9th, and you can get tour dates here.
