Threesome

25/11/16Tel Aviv's Blossoming Buttering Trio Releases Album Number Three
 

"What started out as studio jams in a smoky basement in Berlin evolved into a world-wide-touring, three-headed, music-making love monster."

Leave it to Tel Aviv's Buttering Trio to release an intensely melodious third album, with a beauty of an opener, somewhat reminiscent of the thoroughly enriching soundscapes of a certain Portishead.

And yet, composed of bassist/prolific producer Beno Hendler, production wizard/Raw Tapes founding father Rejoicer and majestic frontwoman KerenDun, Buttering Trio open up an aural smorgasbord of their own on "Threesome", unleashing a warm, playful, harmonious, intuitive and uncompromising blend of intergalactic rhythms, tribal patterns and archetypical styles:

"Our third and new album is the reflection of the sobering evolvement of ourselves. We approached the making of the album with clarity and intention, working on a regular basis with a very specific vision, a vision of an album that ultimately combines the beauty of studio-beat-making and organic song writing. [...] Each song stands for itself as an individual, tells a single complete story, still contributing to the harmony of the whole. This special kind of tension between the single song and the whole musical vision is one that we play with, in our live concerts and in this new album specifically."

Conceived in Berlin, London and Tel Aviv, Threesome is the perfect album to bring that love to a world filled with too much hate. Listen to the entire LP over at Bandcamp, the album opener "Love In Music" in the SoundCloud player up above or watch the official video to "Unexperienced" below. Our personal favorite is the short but super sweet "Refugee Song". Spread it!
