The Builders And The Butchers perform Live on Drinking From Puddles for 03/09/11 !!

“The Builders And The Butchers’ musical output is something of a Pentecostal throw-down—the musical underpinnings are reminiscent of bluegrass, but the performances are raw and unschooled, with Sollee in particular throwing off a maniacally ecclesiastical sort of energy…dark, sparkling, Leadbelly-like terrain covered by death-fixated epics…”
