Based in Victoria, British Columbia, Aidan Knight and his band play — in their words, quoting the words of others — “baroque” and “downtrodden” music. Don’t let this mislead you — though much of it is slow, or mellow, or quiet, there’s a subdued sort of optimism going on just below the surface throughout many of these experimental folks songs. Sure, there’s the sort of melancholy that comes from recording in a cabin in the woods, Bon Iver-style, but there’s more to Aidan Knight than that. Here, he and the band play some songs and Aidan talks a bit about the songwriting and recording process.
Butter The Children is an NYC-based quartet, newly signed to Downtown Records that features members of Le Rug, Sweet Bulbs, and Night Manager (who were previously featured on Serious Business on BTR). The band blasts out satisfying post-punk/indie rock tunes that would make the perfect soundtrack to just about any flick revolving around road trips, wild parties, or young lovers. Keeping the tempos up and the guitars going wild, no moment is wasted with this band. Also, as they tell Travis here, they may be working on a concept record — so there’s that.
