The Buttertones - Midnight in a Moonless Dream LP

Label: Innovative Leisure
Regular price $19.98
On White Vinyl! 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. On this album, they'd decided, everything would be new not just new sounds, like their first-ever string section, but new ways of working together and writing together. They worked on trust and instinct, by feeling instead of thinking. If it worked, they'd keep it, and if it didn't, they'd burn it and move on. Gravedigging played like the soundtrack to a good heist movie, but Midnight was like the true story itself a perfect and intricate crime, executed by a crew of professionals under cover of night.
