From The Desk Of Butch Walker: Febreze

Butch Walker built his reputation with hard-hitting, self-produced rock albums marked by a bright, polished sound. When he set out to make Afraid Of Ghosts, an LP partially inspired by the death of his father, he decided to forget about perfection and aim for a more visceral, acoustic feel. The songs on Afraid Of Ghosts were written over the course of a year, then recorded with Ryan Adams and his band in a four-day burst of creativity. It’s the first time Walker worked with an outside producer. Walker will be guest editing all week. Read our brand new feature on him.


Walker: Until they tell me that this shit causes cancer, I swear by it on the road and in the tour bus. I sweat like a whore in church onstage, so washing clothes every day is not an option. I hang them up after a show, douse them with this spray bottle of heavenly mystery juice, and the next day, everything smells clean and doesn’t creep back in. This is probably the grossest thing in my posts for you guys.
