When you listen to the music of Butchers Blind you know the future of Alt-Country shines blindingly bright. It’s easy to hear the influences of Wilco, Gram Parsons and The Band in their music, but the real magic is how they blend these ingredients into a musical recipe all their own. Butchers Blind encompasses the rich history of American Roots music, then broadens and reshapes it into something exciting, refreshing and uniquely their own.
While bands like Whiskeytown and Uncle Tupelo helped shape their Americana roots, the raw energy of influences like the Replacements and the Hold Steady give them a rock sensibility. Pete Mancini’s confident, yet vulnerable vocals give their sound a rich texture. His songwriting draws you in and if you listen close enough you can hear the future of Alt-Country music in every note.
