The name of the latest album by the Buffalo Killers is “Dig. Sow. Love. Grow.” So, yes, it is very influenced by the 1960s. And that’s not a bad thing, particularly in a musical environment dominated by 1980s pop knockoffs and indie rockers who sound like something between David Byrne and Bruce Springsteen.
They look like hippies, too:
But they play like Allmans. Alright, maybe it’s not quite that ground up, but there’s a lot of rootsy, bluesy, muscular guitar work underneath the rootsy, bluesy, muscular vocals and just above the rootsy, bluesy, muscular bass and drums. At least, on the songs that aren’t quite so … Psychedelic. This is a great album if you love the sounds of the sixties, Led Zep, The Black Keys, The White Stripes, Sabbath, The Rasberries, Moby Grape…Fuck it, it’s just a great album period.
I’d love to see these guys tour, but they’re staying off the coast for the rest of the year…
