Sweet Tooth, which arrives three years after Mom Jeans' second LP Puppy
Love, was recorded in New Jersey at The Barber Shop Studios with
producer Brett Romnes (The Front Bottoms, Oso Oso, Dogleg). Butler says
it's the first time the band had a proper, top-to-bottom studio
experience, which meant no cutting corners, and an ability to chase a
previously-unattainable level of Polish. Tyler Povanda (Save Face) and
Kory Gregory (Prince Daddy & the Hyena) contributed vocals to the
record.The music on Sweet Tooth marked a departure for Butler from his
usual writing style. "I fell in love with bands like Modern Baseball and
Front Bottoms and Joyce Manor, so I wanted to write songs like that,"
says Butler. "That's what our first two records were: me trying to stay
in that box, cause I think that's where I felt comfortable."
