Burnside Album Details

Builders and the Butchers, The, Salvation is a Deep Dark Well

On their second record The Builders and the Butchers had the good fortune to be working with Chris Funk from The Decemberists & Black Prairie. Unlike their first records which was recorded in a living room, Salvation was recorded in the legendary Type Foundry Studios in Portland Or. Salvation is a Deep Dark Well features a multitude of guest instrumentalists and dense tracking of acoustic instruments, giving each song its own unique flavor. Mr. Funk brought in a legit gospel choir for the final track The World is a Top, and Analisa Tornfelt and Sebastian Bibb-Barrett fill our the sound with Violin and Trumpet. The album was mastered by Portland legend Tucker Martine, who masterfully fit each of the pieces together. This record was released in 2009 and is the Builders most widely acclaimed to date.
