Butcher Brown made a beat tape. Their new album, Grown Folk is twenty short, tight songs, most of them between a minute and two in length, that has that fuzy, funky sound that has quickly become their signature. However, this latest mix from Richmond, VA’s Jellowstone Studios seems to go knee deep in these guys’ classic ethos– they literally made a beat tape. And they’re damn good beats, like the seeds of ideas with just a little bit of flavor on them that are easy to hear and easier to hear on repeat. They just dropped the first single, “Bailar”, as a taste before they drop the tape (and download) at the Thrash Flow store on Cassette Store Day on October 17 (That’s a thing? Eh, I guess that’s a thing). Give it a spin after the jump.
