Shiny Shiny Black to release debut studio album

Shiny Shiny Black to release debut studio album Saturday

(Continued)

The first three songs involve a solitary character walking through their life on Earth, seeing things that are happening and experiencing life with a distant view — “kind of more of an arch view,” Butler said.

The next several tunes offer a different take. Standout track “Lights On,” for example, is sung from the vantage point of someone being frustrated with people who make mistakes and hurt him — and realizing, over time, that he does a lot of the same things.

The three songs at the end of the album, “Love Like That,” “Simple Love” and “The Prisoner,” make up what Butler terms a personal-relationship trilogy, his thoughts and feelings about his relationship with his wife and daughter.

“Travelers” was engineered, mixed and produced by Butler and Tim Bushong. The drums, played by Butler, were recorded at The Goshen Theater, and the rest of the album recorded at T-Bush Record Farm. To say Butler was enthused to record with Bushong is true, and understatement.

“He is the shredder of all shredders,” Butler said, referring to Bushong’s guitar prowess. “He was a hero of mine when I was a kid.” At age 19, Butler made his first record with Bushong in 1996.

“He was good then, and he’s gotten a lot better since then as a record producer and as an engineer,” Butler said.

Shiny Shiny Black plans to take its music on the road. Butler said the group will be working with a couple of different drummers this summer for the live show. That will cut down on multi-tasking by the three principal members; Butler, Sherck and Chris have been splitting percussion duties onstage.

“We have always kind of played the drums as a group, which is cool but also has some limitations that I’m ready to move beyond,” Butler said. “You can’t move around at all on the stage. It makes it hard to push that effect on your guitar pedal or those kinds of things because your feet are already tied — you’re standing on one and hitting the bass drum with the other.”
