ButterQueen – “I Like To Stay Home” (R. Stevie Moore Cover)

Orlando trio ButterQueen take on lo-fi legend RSM for r/cassetteculture’s latest compilation tape, Rituals. In July, ButterQueen was named “Best New Band to Rep Orlando Hard” by Orlando Weekly, a fitting title given the band’s admiration for Orlando underground landmarks in songs like “Dinner at Wally’s”. This is a band that sticks to their roots. Whether it’s singing about their hometown or paying homage to a musical hero, ButterQueen is dedicated to keeping the gristle of the underground alive and kickin’. Enjoy.

Hometown Hereos: ButterQueen

It’s 12:30. ButterQueen are performing at Will’s Pub. They’re playing The Clash, but not literally. I say they’re playing The Clash, because in this humble man’s opinion, tonight ButterQueen are the only band that matters. Enjoy.

Orlando’s Frankenstein’s Monster is sleazier than ever

So I saw ButterQueen last night. As always, they were a thrill to see. The connection between the members Jordan, Susana, and Phil feels incredibly organic. They speak to each other like old chums, cracking jokes and taking shots. This authenticity is what ButterQueen is all about; three friends making  music about the town they love, for the town they love. Make yourself comfortable. You’re at home with ButterQueen.

The band recently did a radio session with WMNF. It’s awesome!!

The Haroux – “Suzie Baby”

I’m really excited about what’s to come for The Haroux. Their first EP will be released in the next few months, and they’ve already proven themselves with their live show. “Suzie Baby” is an impressive taste of what’s to come.  The song starts as bare bones garage rock, but when the effects kick in, the song takes on new life. The vocals drone over the top of the instrumentation, effectively tying the two halves together. If you enjoy The Haroux’s Tame Impala-esque sonic experimentation, stay tuned, because “Suzie Baby” is just the tip of the iceberg.

ButterQueen – “Cover Up”

ButterQueen holds a special place in this blogger’s black heart. One of my earliest articles was covering a show featuring the three-some, and they gave me some much appreciated support. My first impression of Butterqueen: “Composed of one part Wet Nurse, one part Basements of Florida, and one part Tam Tam the Sandwich Man, this Frankenstein’s Monster came out swinging…Vocal duties [alternate] between salty and sweet, but their sound is all sleaze.” “Cover Up” keeps the whisky dreams alive, with a Stone’s influenced riff and numerous vocal melodies. Although ButterQueen may not be the most thought provoking Orlando band, they are without a doubt one of the raunchiest, and there music will keep you drinking, fighting, and fucking all night long.


ButterQueen survive on a diet of booze and cigarettes on their self-titled release out now!

Pasty Cline – “Fixed Point In Time”

Pasty Cline is like folk music put through a blender: messy, crass, and loud as hell. This solo-project by Girl on the Beach’s Connor Safran is a radical departure from his other work, and let’s us see another side of his musical personality. The whole song sounds like it was recorded with a shitty microphone in a single take. There’s an electric guitar buzzing in my ear, whilst Safran’s distorted voice blast through my speakers. The minimalist percussion consists of a thumping which evokes footsteps. One man, one message. Golden.


Haven’t gotten your fix? It’s okay. Pasty Cline has a whole album of jams just waiting.
