Listen to Matt Rendon of The Resonars' New Psych Project Called Butterscotch Cathedral

Posted By on Fri, Jul 24, 2015 at 3:16 PM

Between recording some of my favorite locally made records released this year at his studio Midtown Island and fronting the pioneering Tucson rock group The Resonars, Matt Rendon's also got a little something else up his sleeve. Rendon's new project, called The Butterscotch Cathedral, is a high-concept full psych experiment that, from the first listen, actually teleports you to the UK in the mid-to-late '60s, rather than simply appropriating the sound.

National music blog Brooklyn Vegan released the first track from The Butterscotch Cathedral, drawing ties to both The Who and Beach Boys instantly. Truthfully, from that first song, it seems like the project and forthcoming album could comfortably nestle its way into Piper-era Pink Floyd or even The Beatles circa Sgt. Pepper as well. See for yourself:


Although we're going to have to wait until October to snag a copy of The Butterscotch Cathedral's self-titled debut, which will be released via Trouble in Mind (Jacco Gardner, Mikal Cronin, Del Shannon, etc.), Rendon also released a promo video for the project. Hopefully both "Flood of Mendoza" and that acid trip of a promo will hold us all over until then, but I doubt it. Anyway, without further ado:
