Daily Dose: The Buttertones, "Baby C4"

Daily Dose is your daily source for the song you absolutely, positively need to hear every day. Curated by the Paste Music Team.

The Buttertones sounds like the kind of group you’d find doing four-hour marathon shifts in a velvet-drenched hotel bar, laying down the hits of yesterday and today in their inimitable smooth rock fashion.

The actual band named The Buttertones is far different and far more feral animal. The L.A. outfit plays music that hearkens back to the seamy no wave sounds of James White and the Blacks and Jonathan Fire*Eater, tempered just so by singer/guitarist Richard Araiza’s pompadoured stammers and squeals.

These gents have a big year ahead of them starting with the upcoming release of their new album “Midnight In A Moonless Dream”: https://buttertones.bandcamp.com/album/midnight-in-a-moonless-dream (out on May 4th via Innovative Leisure Records) and a big tour that includes stops at SXSW and a spot amid the glorious chaos that is Coachella. Check out the tour dates below. But before you do, enjoy a track from The Buttertones’ new album. Don’t look directly at your speakers, though, lest you wind up with your eyebrows and eyelashes singed.
