The Builders and the Butchers -Lullaby
The Builders and the Butchers - Rotten to the Core
Builders and butchers are quite the opposite careers, and for having such a dark and abstruse name The Builders and the Butchers have a great sound that is catchy and memorable. The have a grimy folk sound that is not only wholesome but also filling. They released their 4th album, Dead Reckoning, 2/22/2011 and its a roller coaster ride of slow and fast, turns and loops, that will get you back in line after the first ride. (Think This) I listened to Dead Reckoning for the first time last week and I couldn't get enough of it, I'm on spin 6 right now. You have to check out "Lullaby" and "Rotten to the Core," two of the highlights off their just released album, but check out some of their earlier stuff to get a feel for their progression and overall sound. They have a few free mp3s on their website, which you can find below. Don't forget about the video for "Lullaby," it's killer.
