ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Garner Butler has been singing, writing, producing and directing theater for over 20 years. His brother, Todd (the good-looking one) has been playing live music and doing comedy for over 30. Raised on a communal farm in Alberta, these long-lost brothers have finally brought their talents together for a musical adventure--and the results are magical.

Armed with only free health care and a hockey attitude, these boys are blazing a trail of fun and hippie angst across the known Universe, one song at a time. Hold on to your horses, you’re going for a ride with the Psychedelic Cowboys

The Butlers did it!
Even for Todd Butler, PSYCHEDELIC COWBOYS is frackin’ awesome, a work of stupendous power and profound meaning, a big bittersweet bag of beauty and heartbreak that’s almost too strong to take in a single sitting: I had to pause after each track to let it sort of sink in and have its way with me before moving on.  This music is liquor so strong, it should be served with a whisk broom, so the customer can brush off the sawdust after he gets back up off the floor.  

I think it’s the best work Todd's ever done, at least that I know about, and I will sure be looking for lots more by his brother Garner from now on. Garner's “My Town” is unbelievable, a song of sharp regret John Prine would have been proud to write, and Todd's “Every Day” just fries me, with its perfect presentation of sentiment without sentimentality.  And I know of few songs with the pain and the honesty of “Timothy Leary,” about what it's like to grow up in a commune, with parents who are acid-absentees.  

Every damn track on PSYCHEDELIC COWBOYS is a gem, and together, in that order, they’re....the only word I can find is “masterpiece.”  Very few songwriters have the courage to work as naked as Todd and Garner Butler did here. Todd's guitar work is smokin' throughout, as usual. The brothers' harmonies are Crosby-and-Nash good.  And Pete Slauson’s production is simply impeccable.

This album should win a Juno AND a Grammy. Hell, you could use the lyrics as the basis of a great screenplay, then use the CD as the movie's score--which would then qualify it for an Oscar, too.
