Blood on Your Hands
Label: Alive Naturalsound
Ohio power trio Buffalo Killers is forever hiking the rolling foothills between James Gang's hick-funk and Pure Prairie League's wispy country-pop. Compared to the fairly muted 3, its predecessor, Dig. Sow. Love. Grow. sports more Mountain Dew good times: riff-riding sing-alongs and high-flying choruses (those harmonies are just excellent) that sound swell while tubing down the Hocking River with a case of cheap suds in tow. The hardest of all the rockers present is opener "Get It." Another standout is "Graffiti Eggplant," anchored as it is by a Dead-like guitar lick that seesaws all about.
