Though likely a reference to the classic rhyme (“Rub-a-dub-dub, Three men in a tub… the butcher, the baker, the candlestick-maker…”), we like to think that Hank Baker named the Brooklyn-based Butchers & Bakers with Guns N’ Roses in mind. Bringing to mind Helium and Show Your Bones-era Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the band plows through tight psych-inspired indie rock, with enough of a hint of grunge to make that flannel you’re rockin’ feel totally appropriate. The band sat down with Travis to talk about how the guys are constantly being punished for originally hiring a different singer, nerd out on Nuggets, and contemplate marketing the band through online dating.
Featured song: “Victory March”
