Deep in the mythical land of Rock Island, IL—it's nothing like Skull Island (there are no giant apes), or Candy Apple Island ("Candy Apple Island? What do they got there? Apes. But they're not so big.")—lies the headquarters of Daytrotter.
It was there that the junkyard carnival band that is The Builders and The Butchers rolled through town and recently recorded a session in support of their upcoming album, Salvation is a Deep Dark Well. Their set included a few new songs, one from their s/t debut, and even a number from their twelve-inch split with Loch Lomond.
Have at it.
