The first word of the album says it all: 'Bang!' On their new album The Buttertones dig deep and discover something dark. Where their previous album played like the soundtrack of a good spaghetti-western heist movie, this one moves to the dark cityscapes of '70s New York. A biting sound befitting of CBGB's while staying true to their LA roots, there are echoes of Suicide and Bauhaus. It's music made for dancers but also for doomed romancers that will appeal to fans of The Cramps, The Gun Club, Car Seat Headrest, Black Lips, King Tuff, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, and Parquet Courts.
