Bad Vibes is chuffed to announce we'll be bringing over The Buttertones in September. The lads are Signed to Innovative Lesiure, and we're sure you'll love them.

"The Buttertones is a perfect name for a band that so frictionlessly blends genres and styles. Redman holds his Northwestern roots accountable for his musical upbringing. "Alternative FM radio and 90s grunge was kind of my diet as a youth," he says. Araiza confesses the first album he ever bought was Aaron Carter's 2000 opus Aaron's Party (Come Get It). But these days, he's more influenced by the vocal style of Scott Walker, one third of the mid-60s pop trio The Walker Brothers. "He croons, and sings doomy ballads," says Araiza. "I like Latino trios too, like Los Tres Ases or Los Tres Reyes ― the guitar playing is beautiful." He also shouts out 80s post punk, jazz (he and Cobi have been listening to Art Blakey and Bud Powell records on the road), Björk, and Nicolas Jaar's now defunct Darkside. "We all can relate to certain artists, but we each have our own heroes and holy trinities," Araiza says of his bandmates and their influences. "We're all over the map."
