Album Of The Week: Buttering Trio – Threesome

Album: Buttering Trio - Threesome

Buttering Trio’s anticipated third album aptly titled “Threesome” arrived recently through the excellent Raw Tapes label.

Influenced, as always, by worldwide rhythms and ideas, you’ll hear a multitude of sounds ranging from Indian ragas, tribal music, archetypical melodies infused with complex beat-making, organic songwriting, and warm vocals.

The Tel Aviv trio created the album in three different studios around the world – Trixx Studios in Berlin, Fossil Studios in London and Firehouse Studios in Tel Aviv. All the sessions were driven by an uncompromising sound approach, yet always with the natural twist of noise.

“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. Buttering Trio

The record is expertly knitted together by the future funk instrumentation of Rejoicer and Beno while Dun’s introspective and passionate lyricism shines a light on their troubled homeland.

Perhaps not as immediate as previous efforts, but repeated listening marks Threesome as their strongest work to date.     

★★★☆☆
