We need to talk about The Buttertones. Why aren’t they the biggest band in the world? They should be! Record Culture thinks so anyway. The Buttertones play a ghoulish dark western fused with jangling surf rock; a band with the grim backdrop of Bambara or The Birthday Party, and the psychobilly energy of The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Jazzhound is the band’s fifth album in all and follows what surely has to be considered their most superb to date in 2018’s Midnight In A Moonless Dream.
Vibrant mashup of tangy surf rock and twitchy psychobilly
I love the Buttertones and have done since their Gravedigging album of 2017 and if you don’t agree with me by now then I’m done helping you. Their vibrant mashup of tangy surf rock and twitchy psychobilly hasn’t scratched my itch for the ghoulish stuff since the demise of The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. New album Jazzhound doesn’t alter their tried and true formula much, though does totally misguide people on what they’re getting with an album called Jazzhound alongside that sort of retro Blue Note sleeve artwork.
