Butterknife

BUTTERKNIFE | Middle East upstairs | January 28 | "We don't really like guitar solos," reads part of the online biography from Somerville rock quartet Butterknife, and for good reason: when you pack this many hooks and melodies into a five-song EP, there's no time for showboating fuckery. New record Do the Needful shows a cohesive unit teetering on the brink of power-pop without getting too obnoxious about it, reminding us that there's nothing wrong with straight-up no-frills rock and roll with soul.
