Lo-fi fuzz rich garage rockers Lush Buffalo are the swamp spawn of 60s Nuggets kats and the 80s comps It Came From Canada. Here’s a game; pick a Nugget and smash it into a Came From, and you will find something akin to at least one of the tracks on the Buffalo’s debut album. Listening to this will have you digging through your crates for the most obscure one-hit underground indie college rock bands ‘cause there’s a subtle little riff-du-homage in each one. Ah yes its easy to think oh Weezer, oh, yes Zeppelin, Monkees, Count Five but go deeper baby deeper. Lush Buffalo are channelling the Stand GT, the Dik Van Dykes, The Chesterfield Kings and the Chessmen. Lush Buffalo have all the records, they may even have The Fiends, they’re a vintage vinyl shop all of their own.
The Buff Lushalos have a record release show Saturday Mar 4 at the Horseshoe Tavern in TO. Can’t wait for these diggers of vinyl to have their own platter and to get my scrawny spawny hands on one. Didn't know I was seeking my next fave band but looks like I found it.
