Take Me Back Home
Label: Alive Records
At first blush, Buffalo Killers sound like your archetypal California stoner-rock act: Zep-inspired blues rock dripping with fuzzy swagger. But here's the thing: the group hails from southern Ohio, a longtime hotbed for country and bluegrass. Play Let It Ride loud enough, especially "Leave the Sun Behind," and you'll discover a layer of heartland twang. These dudes aren't cosmic --they're earthy. If you live life like a late '70s Mountain Dew commercial, then Buffalo Killers are for you.
