Bread & Butter - Bread & Butter
It is said that man does not live by bread alone. Of course, that is a correct statement, because if you have bread, you need butter. This shouldn't be in the least bit controversial. So consider the self-titled album from Seattle's Bread & Butter to be your perfectly balanced comfort food. It is ten tracks of crunchy, hook-filled rock and roll. This is the kind of stuff that formed the backbone of indie rock in the '79s and every decade since, withstanding changing fads and not so much defying the charts as simply not giving a damn about them. These songs radiate sunshine and chug along with a friendly swagger. Be warned, when you start consuming Bread & Butter, it is almost impossible to stop.
The members of Bread & Butter are Shane Herrell (vocals/bass), Ryan Kraft (guitar), Lars Swenson (guitar), and Mason Lowe (drums). The album is released by Seattle's Killroom Records. See the Bandcamp link for details.
