How many indie bands are there in Brooklyn? Ten thousand? Butane Variations is yet another band churning out tingling guitar songs with a country feel. Their untitled full length and an the simultaneously released outtakes EP Love Five Songs cover a wide range of subjects, including Goldie Hawn, angels and making mix tapes.
The Brooklyn sextet is a fine addition for the alt.country crowd, a bit of an afterhours version of Wilco.

- 11/16 Boulder Coffee Co., Rochester, NY
- 11/17 The Chapter House, Ithaca, NY
