by Michael McCarthy (Beaulieu) & Jay Cavalon First of all, I’m sure some of you will think that we’ve put some of these albums in the wrong categories. To that end, all we can say is that the best albums often transcend genre classifications and that this was what we came up with...Read more

#songoftheday = BUTCH WALKER: “END OF THE WORLD (ONE MORE TIME)” (#songsforourtimes #18)
"Skyrockets in flight / Get ready for a fight!" proclaims Butch Walker excitedly before a "hey, hey" during the bridge of his ultra-catchy ode to the end of the world, appropriately entitled, "End of the World (One More Time)." ...Read more
#songoftheday = Suzanne Santo (of HoneyHoney fame): “Ghost in My Bed” (produced by Butch Walker)
I loved Suzanne Santo in honeyhoney. I listened to their First Rodeo album on heavy rotation when it came out and still play it from time to time. And if her new single "Ghost in My Bed" is any indication her next album will be just as amazing....
CATCHING UP 7.0: JENNY LEWIS, BUTCH WALKER, ADIAM, EL PERRO DEL MAR
I caught Jenny Lewis live in Boston at the The Wang Theatre in Boston this past Tuesday night, 9/13/16. What a fantastic show.

CATCHING UP, VERSION 1.0: Róisín Murphy, Trick or Treat, Butch Walker, T.O.L.D., Perfume, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Ayumi Hamasaki, Hitomi Yaida

#albumoftheday / FEATURE REVIEW: BUTCH WALKER: AFRAID OF GHOSTS
It’s possible that more than half the people who’ll read this review have never even heard of Butch Walker. But he’s been one of my favorite artists for as far back as I can remember. When I was just a teenager he was the lead guitarist in a hair band I was really...Read more
#songoftheday / REVIEW: BUTCH WALKER: “FATHER’S DAY”
Like "Bed On Fire" and "21+," two of the previous cuts to be unleashed from Butch Walker's upcoming album Afraid of Ghosts, "Father's Day" starts off nice and mellow and gradually builds. It's almost like having a conversation with someone that starts off as casual chit chat...
#songoftheday / REVIEW: BUTCH WALKER: “BED ON FIRE”
Butch Walker is one of today's most incredible singer/songwriters and producers. But Ryan Adams produced this track, as well as the rest of Butch's upcoming album Afraid of Ghosts, giving it a haunting hue through which Butch conveys a whole lotta emotion. This mesmerizing number is so...
SINGLE SPOTLIGHT: BUTCH WALKER: End of the World (One More Time) / Battle vs. The War
The last time I saw Butch Walker — sometime last year, at The Sinclair in Cambridge, Massachusetts — he did a bunch of new songs and talked about how they were going to be on a new EP he was releasing called Peachtree Battle. I really enjoyed all of the songs and was...Read more
