The Buttertones: Jazzhound (album review by Christa V.)

The Buttertones are a band from LA whose music straddles many different genres. All of their songs feature the deep voice of their vocalist, and manyfeature a saxophone among the guitar and synth. This allows them to make music that sometimes feels like punk, and sometimes feels closer to jazz. For agood range of their talent, there’s “Denial You Win Again” which is a very atmospheric song that closes with a great sax feature. Then there’s “Bebop,”which sounds completely different from the rest of the album, and somehow manages to include a horn section while also being incredibly dark. The closingtrack, “Jazzhound,” has an amazing beat to get you grooving. Favorite tracks: 2, 6, 10
