TUNE Buttering Trio - Unexperienced
Album number three, conceived in three different studios around the world, by the three-headed love monster that is Buttering Trio.
Buttering Trio are three gentle souls from Tel Aviv trying to bring the funk to the desert and some peace in a troubled region. What started out as studio jams in a smoky basement in Berlin evolved into a worldwide-touring, music-making three-headed love monster. Rejoicer, Beno and KerenDun are all musicians and producers, a fact that is felt in their uncompromising sound. The trio's combination of loop-based beats with live instruments (saxophone, vocals, synths and bass) creates a natural and refreshing flow between atmospheric sounds, jazz explorations, and broken rhythms. Their third album 'Threesome' is the reflection of the sobering evolvement of themselves:
"We approached the making of the album with clarity and intention, working on a regular basis with a very specific vision, a vision of an album that ultimately combines the beauty of studio-beat-making and organic songwriting. Unlike our previous albums, that were more on the range of spontaneous intuitive combustions, this album is a matured love child of an ever-awaking threesome of parents. ‘Threesome’ is an album that moves the soul, bounces the body and looks in the eyes."
The album was created in three different studios around the world - Trixx Studios in Berlin, Fossil Studios in London and Firehouse Studios in Tel Aviv. All the sessions were driven by an uncompromising sound approach, yet always with the natural twist of noise. The creative process was in liquid form - it could be an intuitive beat upon which harmonies and lyrics were laid, or could begin with a well processed harmony to which a rhythm is matched. The song making was always potent with playfulness but the big picture was solid.
Influenced by round-the-galaxy rhythms and ideas, from Indian ragas through tribal music to archetypical melodies with a drop of dub, each song stands for itself as an individual, still contributing to the harmony of the whole. The special kind of tension between the single song and the whole musical vision is one that they play with, in live concerts and in this new album specifically.
"The album owes its existence to the uniquely changing relationship between the three of us. A relationship that manifests through communication that allows space and mystery, and is based on the common primal acceptance that nothing stays the same. Some ultra talented friends helped to make this album - Asaf Shay, Piloni, Yogev Glusman, Yonatan Albalak, Tomer Bar, Raz Olsher and Avi Tuchman."
