Butcher Bear "This Is How The Game Gets You Played" (Yellow Cassette)


"Butch Webster aka Butcher Bear aka Sampler & Son aka (iN) label boss, was born in Austin, TX descended from Cajuns. HeŠ—Ès one of the co-founders of the collective, Exploded Drawing, books the club, The North Door and he owns and operates (iN)Sect Records.

For his second LP under the Butcher Bear moniker, he has assemble a massive group of guest features, handles vocal duties on a couple songs and assembled a live group to record a few of his songs, as well as producing everything on the record, save for one song produced by Big Legs.

The roster for Š—“This is How the Game gets you PlayedŠ—? includes: SelfSays, Muamin Collective, Sir Froderick, Lo Phi, Marc Bianchi (Her Space Holiday), Reaganometry, Graham Reynolds (Golden Arm Trio), Chief & The Doomsday Device, BoomBaptist, AADM OUR HATLEY, Strong Silent Type, Sampler & Son, and Ethan Kennedy (Mother Falcon).

Butch goes from boom-bap to new wave to nightmarish house to new territories of sound altogether. His production is steeped in live instrumentation, having played drums/gtr/vox/keys in bands for 20 years, his bastardized sounds and production weave samples and snatched up sounds into a masterpiece of a storyline. The MCŠ—Ès featured on the album are all people he considers family, each adding their own flavors, while the main theme stays in tact. Š—…What are you saving it for? Let the music air out. Breathe Deep. Stay Original.Š—È

Š—…DonŠ—Èt forget, thereŠ—Ès a drought goinŠ—È on, be generous with your creativity.Š—È Š—– Rich Jacobs
