Kutcha Butcha – Xander and the Desert Winds

Kutcha Butcha is the solo project of (four times Mercury nominee, and Polar Bear collaborator) Sebastian Rochford, where Seb writes/performs/produces/mixes everything himself. From the album NDYA, the first of four limited edition releases that Seb has planned for 2019 (the first on CD, the second being a download, the third on cassette and the fourth on vinyl). Out on (Seb’s own?) aptly named Half Baked Bread Records (because “Kutcha Butcha” literally means Half Baked Bread), NDYA is available from Bandcamp.

The new album is available to pre-order on Bandcamp as either a Limited Edition, High-Bias cassette tapes w/ Full Colour Label (run of 100), or Digital Album. His first album ‘Midnight Satori’ is definitely worth a listen too (and is that a Dizzee Rascal sample in the track ‘Mindshift’??? Spotify).
