No doubt multi-instrumentalist Raphael Tiller is frequently asked about the name of his indie-rock folk band. Tiller, who had previously performed under the name Cancer Romancer, switched to Accipiter (hawk) Buteo (buzzard) after his father, a bird lover, passed away from cancer. “Accipiters are small and quick, buteos are large and slow, representing the dichotomy of how life (and my mind) work,” he says. Tiller’s been playing music around town since 2003 and spent the better part of 2014 recording his Neil-Young-and-Modest-Mouse-inspired sound in his living room. His four full-length albums are available on Bandcamp.
