NICK CARVER & the MEAN STREET BUTCHERS
Nick Carver & The Mean St Butchers sound like the twisted love child of Johnny Cash and Josh Homme. Their debut album “The River” is a collection of songs written by Carver after moving to the beach in 2016. Carver’s razor blade guitar work and versatile singing voice, which can range from soothing falsetto to guttural screams, is underpinned with thumping drums, lurking bass lines and jarring keyboard tones. With songs inspired by fishing for sharks in the summertime, binge watching The Sopranos in the wintertime, and encountering ghosts on long abandoned roads, they’re here to break your heart and melt your face.
