Changing things up are L.A.’s Buttertones with the new single, “You And Your Knife,” off the band’s new album Midnight In A Moonless Dream, dropping May 4 on Innovative Leisure. The sounds is different from last year’s Gravedigging, but it finds the band expanding on its sound, exploring new territory.
Midnight was made in two flash sessions at Long Beach’s Jazzcats studio with Gravedigging producer Jonny Bell, whose genre-smashing record collection and appetite for experimentation made for a perfect match. (He’s really a guru, they say.) What was supposed to be a six-song EP during the summer of 2017 bloomed into a full-length by the end of that December. Midnight was like a trust fall, the band says-leap of faith after leap of faith, cut to tape as it happened by a tight and tour-tested band.
