Finding their origins seven years ago as a triplet of music school misfits, Los Angeles’ The Buttertones have since evolved into a near-quixotic rock quintet. The Buttertones first showed their psych-influenced stuff over a number of releases since 2013 and really shined last year with their first full-length, Gravedigging. Rolling with the momentum of Gravedigging, The Buttertones just today released its darker, musically sophisticated sister album, Midnight In A Moonless Dream.
What was destined to be a slim six-song EP has evolved into eleven robust arrangements, showcasing The Buttertones’ increasingly organic songwriting process and a string section to support that! Last week The Buttertones caused some controlled chaos out at Coachella but you can ditch the FOMO right now with a free download of “You And Your Knife”.
