NEW! HARRY STAFFORD & MARCO BUTCHER Juniper Sunday
by Walter Price
In short, if you’re into cerebral jazzy post-punk goth then the brand new extended remix of Harry Stafford and Marco Butcher’s ode to long-lost loves, “Juniper Sunday”, is just what the doctor ordered. A 5-track masterclass highlighted by not only the title redux but the bluesy-psych tinged track “Ship Gone Down”, the layered hazy groove of “Anatomy of a Midnight Crash”, and a reimagined mint julep stained cover of the deep-dive Tony Osborne Orchestra’s “Puerto de la Cruz” also bring the twisty after-hours charm.

Juniper Sunday (album version)
The original version of “Juniper Sunday” bookends this release, it’s from the duo’s otherworldly 2021 LP, “Bone Architecture“. And for what it’s worth, in a world infected by pre-programmed rhythms and TikTok junk, “Bone Architecture” is a far more healthy and explorative way to fill one’s ears. Send it to all the burgeoning music connoisseurs you know…They’ll thank you later.
You can stream “Juniper Sunday (extended re-mix)” in full, here at the GTC.

“Harry Stafford and Marco Butcher met online primarily it was to exchange ideas and talk about their musical influences. But after a while it soon became apparent that there was more to the ideas and wild notions, they were creating than a mere shared love of Swing, Be-bop, blues, post-punk, trash, and all the untamed genres in between.” – Bandcamp
