Flesh & Blood is John Butler Trio’s sixth studio effort.


Recorded at Butler’s home studio in Fremantle, WA the album is as broad thematically as it is in style, featuring influences from Led Zeppelin to Cypress Hill.


I think the JBT's an eclectic kind of band, so there's some songs that are super heavy, hip-hop beat, moog playing, silvertone guitar going "blaaAaaaah" and then there are other songs that are like ambient folk songs with programmed beats behind them. There's a million and one different things. John Butler


From stream of conscious jams to downbeat, haunting tales, Flesh & Blood is an honest collection of uniquely Australian songs, slow-cooked in Butler’s signature groove.
