Album Review: Butcher Knives – “Misery”


A melting pot of multi-cultural ingredients is what you’ll find in Butcher Knives‘ music, with roots in Morocco, Israel, Columbia, New York and New Orleans. The Brooklyn-based musicians are as authentic as they are diverse and their cohesive sound shines through on their recent album release Misery.

The vocal delivery by Nacho Segura is raw and relaxed but cuts through perfectly one track at a time. The fifth and eighth songs on the album (“Butcher Knives Unite” & “Kaiser Sose”) features bi-lingual rapper Ephniko, delivering Spanish Rap lyrics over what usually would be considered non-traditional beats for hip-hop, but it works. Butcher Knives truly bridges the cultural gap in music and even takes a political stance on immigration in songs like “American Dream”, which is set to become the second single from the album.

The first single from the album is “Tell Me Why” that also has a video that is worth a watch at the band’s YouTube page. The song speaks of love and betrayal and who couldn’t relate to that? When you can relate to a song, an album or a musician there becomes a connection in the universe between you (the fan) and the music itself. Misery will easily connect with you; either from personal experience or at least it will allow you to put yourself in the shoes of the writers.

Each song on the album has perfectly selected samples from Tal Galfsky and each track gives you a sense of punk, middle eastern sound, Spanish elements and an urban landscape. I would totally recommend adding this album to your collection especially because you will be hard-pressed to find a similar style group of musicians. Not bad for a debut.

Album Review: Reverend Horton Heat – ‘Rev’

I’ve been reluctant to give 5 stars on an album review, even to some of my favorite bands and not because the album isn’t awesome it’s because there’s always room for more awesomeness. Today I find myself with no other option than to award 5 stars to Reverend Horton Heat for their latest album, Rev!

Believe me, I tried to pick it apart but all I could do was get sucked in. I also like to take time and actually listen to the album for a while before giving it the rating that it truly deserves.

It’s been just about 30 years that the Reverend Jim Heath has been delivering the self proclaimed “Country-Fed Punkabilly” gospel through his band Reverend Horton Heat. Rev is the band’s eleventh studio album and I found myself trying to separate my existing knowledge of the band and approach this as if it were the first time I ever heard them. It was tough but I think I managed to form an unbiased and uninfluenced review of the album; Rev truly stands on its own.

Track one: “Victory Lap” is an instrumental introduction that leads directly into what I think is my favorite song on the album “Smell of Gasoline”, of course that is subject to change on a daily basis. These two songs together like Siamese twins are not unlike the combination of “We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions”, you can’t have one without the other.

The first song released from Rev was accompanied with the sexiest video in music history “Let Me Teach You How to Eat”. This song is full of innuendo and metaphoric relations between food and wherever your imagination wanders. I can not stress enough that you should watch this video over and over again, preferably alone in a room with the curtains drawn. “Scenery Going By” also has a video which has various clips of the band on the road and is also worth a watch.

It all about where the music takes you and when you listen to this album you may find yourself driving a 1950’s hotrod, windows down and beautiful women everywhere. Give this album a listen and if you love it like I do, please support the Reverend and buy it, so they can make more!!!

DS Video Interview: Butcher Knives (NY gypsybilly punk)

March 1st was Butcher Knives‘ album release show at Piano’s in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. I (Rob Smittix, not Jay Stone) had a chance to do a brief interview with the band before the show as well as capture some interesting clips of their performance. Butcher Knives, as I have coined the phrase is a “Melting Pot” of musicians stemming from all parts of the globe. Band members include: Nacho Segura (Colombia/vocals/percussion), Nikko Matiz (Colombia/vocals/guitar), Melissa Elledge (New Orleans/accordion), Tal Galfsky (Israel/keyboards/sampler), Ethan Cohen (New York City/banjo/guitar/vocals), Yoni Benshlomo (Israel/bass/vocals), and Mohamed Amine Smires (Morocco/drums/vocals). Opening acts included Bad Buka, Outernational, and Escarioka. The show was upbeat and energetic from beginning to end and I would recommend to any music loving fan to see all of these acts live. Check out our video interview below.

Pedro Erazo of Gogol Bordello even stopped by to do a guest appearance in the song “Nobody Knows Me”. Gogol Bordello on a side note, a few days ago tweeted and posted on Facebook that their March tour dates have been cancelled and refunds will be given to ticket holders due to Pedro’s Arm being broken. At the Butcher Knives’ concert Pedro’s hand was wrapped in bandages but he only lent his vocal styling to this show with Gogol he also plays percussion.

Butcher Knives’ first release from the album entitled “Misery” is “Tell Me Why” and there’s a video to coincide. The second release and video will be “American Dream” which touches on the topic of being an immigrant in America. The album is currently available for streaming and purchase at the band’s official website.

Butcher Knives’ concert dates are also posted on their site. On May 17th they will be playing at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn with Mustard Plug, so mark your calendar now!
