The Lonely Biscuits – Butter
Combining rock, jazz, rhythm and blues, soul, funk and hip-hop styling may sound crazy, but The Lonely Biscuits make the blending of these styles into a style all its own on Butter. To say that it works is an understatement! Butter’s 3:20 seconds seem incredibly short, because you want more when it’s all over.
Originally formed in 2011 as Gravy and The Biscuits, The Lonely Biscuits sound fresh and new. They also are amazingly accomplished, from the beat-poet in Grady Wenrich (a.k.a., Gravy Wenrich) to the band’s backup soul harmonies and funky rhythms. The band has independently released three EP’s, but they are a bit hard to find. The store link on their web site shows no product, and the bandcamp.com site shows one of the EP’s (March 2012’s Biscuit Buffet) plus a host of singles. A note to the band: offer your content universally on all sites if possible. The best place to get the most content for The Lonely Biscuits appears to be the reverbnation download links.
Check out this great group now by visiting their web site, which is really just a front for their Facebook page, booking and contact links.
Update: In the space of time between when this review was written a few weeks ago until today, the web site has gone dark. You can find The Lonely Biscuits on their Facebook page, as well as the active links above.
