The Butterscotch Cathedral

All posts tagged The Butterscotch Cathedral

Welcome to the third edition of the Interstellar Radio Shower Week in Review. Here in we pick the favorite song posted by the other (ie. Jim picks his favorite Matt song, and Matt his favorite Jim song) and we say why it’s our fav. Also, quick summaries of our other long posts for the week. Basically, herein we navel gaze.

Jim Picks a Matt Song 

I could easily go with Minor Victories for the great video giving a sneak peak at their upcoming debut. But the audio peaks are so short. So let’s go with something you can listen to and enjoy. I also really like the intro to Jacuzzi Boys. And the song is good, but something about the exchange with the lady about their name that is very familiar. Anyhow, lots of good stuff again this week from Matt. I’m going to go with Butterscotch Cathedral. Because damn if that doesn’t work.

Matt Picks a Jim Song

Another week full of highlights from Jim. I found myself wishing the Nicole Kidman (not the Nicole Kidman, I assume) song was longer so I could let the synth tone gently massage my brain, but ultimately I’ll go full-on 90’s emo/indie and say my favorite post of the week was Silian Rail’s “Slint if they ever smiled” instrumental, followed very closely by the eternally affable Jad Fair and Jason Willett doing their thing.

Drunk Radio Shower – Chile Edition

One of our newer features is our International Radio Shower series. We will pick a different country each month and highlight some of the interesting music coming from that nation state. The mundane aspect of this will debut next Friday with a glimpse into the Greece music scene.

Last night we debuted one of our more obnoxious features. Similar to the International Radio Shower, we dove into music from Chile. And we did so while drinking extensively. And therefore opining absurdedly.

7″ Highlight – The Ghost Ease’s “Quit Yer Job”

We must be on to something. We posted about The Ghost Ease’s excellent 7″ EP “Quit Yer Job” on Tuesday and the next day I got an e-mail from K Records saying they are distributing it. Well, hey, they have good taste. We must have it too. Check out our full blog post here. Or listen to part of it below.

LP Highlight – Min Diesel’s Mince

This weeks focus album is the new release from Scotland’s Min Diesel. This pure indie rock album is really great. You can read the full post by visiting the blog post or listen to the album below.

Sunday, July 26th Radio Show Playlist

Matt held down the fort. The show featured Web of Sunsets, The Homosexuals, and The Aislers Set. Check out the full playlist here.

Sometimes I can pretend I’m verbose enough to describe the stuff I put up on the blog, and sometimes I’m better off just copying and pasting the press release. The Butterscotch Cathedral gets the latter:

The Butterscotch Cathedral is the new studio project from Matt Rendon (Resonars, Lenguas Largas) with Chris Ayers & Jim Waters. Featuring three tracks total (Side one is one 18min sidelong track, & side two contains “Loud Heavy Sun” & the 17-minutes suite “Lisa’s Dream”) the project is Rendon’s homage to the great Sixties & Seventies concept records from bands like The Who & The Beach Boys, both of whom Rendon cite as an influence. Won’t you come inside?

“Flood of Mendoza” finds itself tucked into the albums A-side. The S/T album is out 10/2 on Trouble in Mind.
