ButterQueen guitarist-vocalist Phil Longo has been a fixture of Orlando music as part of much-loved bands like Country Slashers and Basements of Florida, so it comes as no surprise that his newest project references familiar settings on songs like “Dinner at Wally’s” and “U.F.Pho88.” Their song “Speaking Of” introduces ButterQueen’s members, describes a bunch of other local bands on the scene, and throws in an allusion to the Peacock Room. But this band isn’t exceptional just because they name-drop city favorites; the lyrical conversations between Longo and vocalist-bassist Susana Chaplin (Wet Nurse) make for an engrossing live show. Although Munchkin-like vocals and carnival instrumentation is employed to sell the jokey premise of “Butter Run,” the musicianship on their debut – also featuring local go-to drummer Jordan Duttinger (Tam Tam the Sandwich Man) – demands serious attention.
