Butcher The Bar - For Each A Future Tethered mp3 album
For Each a Future Tethered is remarkably different in terms of delivery: the songs have the same melancholy, heart-on-sleeve quality, but they're tighter, with production more focused and full of sparkle. Opening with Sign Your Name, Nicholson reaches for high notes that crackle with emotion while maintaining a near-whisper, just as Smith did so beautifully. The music swings gently, with banjo and piano bouncing gently atop quiet snares and handclaps, a promise of full-on happiness ahead. Nicholson’s 2008 debut as Butcher the Bar-Sleep at Your Own Speed-was a lo-fi affair. For Each a Future Tethered is remarkably different in terms of delivery: the songs have the same melancholy, heart-on-sleeve quality, but they're tighter, with production more focused and full of sparkle.

Butcher the Bar. For Each a Future Tethered, 2011.
Unfortunately for Joel Nicholson, . Lets get this straight from the off, this is not a bad record by any stretch of the imagination. Album closer ‘Lullaby’ starts fairly innocuously but takes a thrillingly euphoric, brass-led turn mid-way through. Perhaps if one or two of the other tracks had been arranged with such maturity I’d be enthusing about what a great album this is, rather than a slightly better than average collection of songs, bookended by some potentially brilliant ones. It is, as a whole, too saccharine, desperately lacking light and shade. Nicholson’s penchant for a multi-tracked vocal, a la Smith, leaves him sounding a little emotionally flat, a feeling conveyed to the listener
Butcher The Bar is the stage name for Joel Nicholson from Rotherham, UK. He makes folk-pop songs using his guitars and a number of instruments bought from flea markets and car boot sales. released November 11, 2011.
Butcher the Bar’s 2008 debut album, Sleep at Your Own Speed, held plenty of promise as young . gent Joel Nicholson rambled and crooned his way through a batch of low-key and melodic folk-pop unencumbered by any traces of hipness or irony. The follow-up For Each a Future Tethered delivers on the promise of the first album; sounding richer and more assured, Nicholson has seemingly fully absorbed the lessons of quiet is the new loud singers like Elliott Smith and the guys in Kings of Convenience.
