Butch County

Sugarloaf Mountain

There shouldn't be a lot of guessing about a band with a name like Butch County, but don't be surprised if the single "Sugarloaf Mountain" doesn't drill a few holes in your skull before it leaves. Butch County (formerly Koonce) gut-punches listeners with the muscle and swing of AC/DC-style, 1970s-flail-your-hair, old-school hard rock. Oh, singer Katy Koonce is a dyke? That just means when she wraps her hand around the microphone, she knows what she's doing. ***
