The Buttertones: Jazzhound

One of the latest signings to the roster of LA's Innovative Leisure, also from Los Angeles come noisy, experimental indie rockers, The Buttertones, who will be releasing their new album Jazzhound, on April 10th, 2020.

With four albums and a few EP and single releases behind them thus far, The Buttertones have strengthened their own variety of dark-inclined punk rock, drawing from surf rock, garage and post punk, without hanging back from their love for different styles like jazz and ska. Their new album's title track partly recalls the spookiness of The Gun Club and the deviancy of The Birthday Party, and lays out the band's gloomiest side rather successfully.

The Buttertones are signer Richard Araiza, multi-instrumentalist Modesto ‘Cobi’ CobiĆ„n, bassist Sean Redman, and saxophonist and keyboardist London Guzman, and they are currently on tour with the great Reverend Horton Heat. Jazzhound was produced by Jonny Bell (Hanni El Khatib, Crystal Antlers).

"We’d do a few takes," Araiza says, "and then it was, ‘Alright, we got all the main instruments done, now let’s record on the vibraphone that was used on Pet Sounds,’ you know?"
