OUT NOW: Lungbutter’s Honey

Today we celebrate the release of our final new title of Spring 2019: Honey, the cacophonous, urgent, brilliantly acerbic debut LP from Montreal art-rock trio Lungbutter.

"[Honey] is a relentlessly adventurous piece of work, thrilling in its ambition. It shifts shape constantly over the course of its eleven tracks, but the basic foundation is Kaity Zozula’s growling discordant guitar, too heavy to be grungy but too keenly aware of its capacity for melody to be metal. Brooks takes the same approach to their vocals, half sung, half shouted, somewhere in between sharp sloganeering and stream of consciousness. Behind it all, Joni Sadler provides gleefully off-kilter percussion, pummelling the drums in a manner that almost sounds like a response to the sonic chaos unfolding around her." – Loud & Quiet

"Zozula concocts these anti-riffs that approach no wave one minute and doom the next, while Sadler patiently punctuates the ideas with tension and relief as Brooks’s recitative vocals float over the dissonant chaos in a state of free association hypnosis." – Bandcamp Daily

"'I like choosing things,' Ky Brooks declares repeatedly throughout the first single off Lungbutter’s upcoming debut album, 'Honey.' It’s a sarcastic refrain, like the introductory monologue to 'Trainspotting,' and while it’s delivered over a guitar tone that hearkens back to the early days of Sonic Youth, it carries more menace than its Gen-X ancestors. Lungbutter weighs down their noise rock with the sense that time is running out, that they could be cut off at any second. There’s more at stake this time than being phony." – Vulture
