Butter The Children – “Spit It Out” (Stereogum Premiere)

Butter The Children are a 4-piece post-punk group from Brooklyn, made of former members of short-lived but locally-loved New York bands like Sweet Bulbs, Night Manager, Fiasco, and Le Rug. Following a self-released debut EP, Butter the Children will release their True Crime EP on August 20 via Downtown Records. Stream the first single, “Spit It Out,” below, an excellent introduction to the band’s way of simultaneously sounding sad and mad; balancing distorted punk guitars and aggressive energy with disaffected downer pop.
