In seemingly a matter of months, Andy Butler went from being a bedroom disco-house producer to leading Hercules & Love Affair, an eight-piece band featuring three vocalists (Antony Hegarty, Nomi Ruiz, and Kim Ann Foxman), a two-man horn section, and Shayne Oliver, a legendary dancer in the New York voguing scene.
