Self-described as “bloody folk,” Bitter Pill plays a dark and anachronistic combination of Country, Psychobilly, Bluegrass, and Vaudeville. They just released their first album,“Prepare Your Throats,” a collection of traditional and original songs from the soundtrack of their staging of William Shakespeare’s violent, bloody, grotesquely ridiculous abomination of a play, “Titus Andronicus.” Bitter Pill is a family affair featuring Emily Butler on vocals and her dad, Billy Butler, on cello; along with Mike McKay on banjo/mandolin, Michael Wingate Seavey and/or Jon McCormack on acoustic guitar, and a rotating roster of singers, circusers, actors, and awkwards. “Exhilarated. Stimulated." NHPR "Prepare Your Throats is intriguing, creative, humorous, raw and not all that wholesome. Two mighty severed thumbs up.” Modspoke.com “There’s a lot to love about this record.” Chris Hislop

We are heading to Brooklyn this coming Saturday to record a handful of one of a kind straight to vinyl records. There is still time to order your own personalized version.

That’s right, just like the old timey days. One take; no edits, no auto-tune, no overdubs – just us and a modified antique record cutting lathe from the 1950’s. Every record is handmade, one at a time, in real time, by a real person.

These records will NOT be mass produced. Each one contains a different live performance that exists nowhere else in the world. They are like audio Polaroids; individual from one another and 100% one-of-a-kind with no other copies made.
