The Butterscotch Cathedral


Matt Rendon of The Resonars is back. After having played in bands like Lenguas Largas, The Knockout Pills and Freezing Hands, he’s now started a new studio project called The Butterscotch Cathedral. It picks up where he left off with the latest album Crummy Desert Sound, which I rated top album of that year. The new one is equally ambitious, upping the ante for his experimental side even more. The self-titled concept album is a tribute to baroque pop masterpieces like Odessey and Oracle and perhaps most notably Tommy. Rendon has often mentioned the immense influence of The Who on his music-making, and you can also spot traces of Butterfly-era Hollies on this one. This is a brilliant record with only 3 tracks – the first one doesn’t even have a title. Head over to Trouble in Mind to pick up your copy before the release on Friday – trust me, this is not one you want to listen to on Spotify or the horrible Apple Music.
