EP ‘Smooth like Butter’


Melbourne mashup mistress Rachel By the Stream will release her soulicious new EP ‘Smooth Like Butter’ on Valentines Day 2013 at the Evelyn Hotel!

‘Smooth Like Butter’ is a cross-genre mash up that captures the energy and smooth production of her dynamic live show, which features multi-instrumentalist RBTS and her trusty loop pedal and on guitar, synth, melodica and percussion, joined by Mattriks on sampler and live beatbox.

It’s love at first listen from the breezy summer opening track ‘Call It Love’ and the swing-noir style of ‘That’s For Sure’ through to the dubbed out soul-infused ‘Return Again’, sparkling pop of ‘Body and Soul’ and disco glitz of ‘Sunshine/Moonlight’.

‘Smooth Like Butter’ showcases Rachel By the Stream’s original song writing, which flirts in the space between genres and plays Cupid – marrying bits of rootsy folk, funky pop and jazz with r’n’b sensibilities, complete with phat bassline and soulicious dubs! The resulting tunes are nothing short of audacious.

Released on Kinship Records, the 5 track EP was produced by local hip-hop artist Mattriks and UK Producer Matt Coldrick.
The launch is to be held at The Evelyn Hotel, 351 Brunswick St, Fitzroy, on Thursday 14th February, followed by a 2 week tour; dates to follow.

The EP is available at the launch event and digitally on iTunes and is out
through Kinship Records Interdependent Label, and distributed by GREEN Media/MGM.
