Introducing…Young Buffalo

Young Buffalo require your immediate attention. You may have heard the Oxford (Mississippi) trio making some internet sonic waves way back in August last year when they released their superb debut demo effort Catapilah, followed by some volcanic shows at SXSW 2009. Since then the lads have been buried away doing what bands are supposed to do: writing and recording songs so consistently brilliant that we imagine they’ve got Local Natives are sitting around in panic mode. Said recordings are due for release on the mega-hip Fat Possum.


In lieu of a UK show, you can get your YB desires fulfilled by visiting their website and/or their Bandcamp page, each with a respective free track for you to drool over. We guarantee you will be bouncing around to Three Deep for days, possibly weeks. Sonically taking root in the best kind of americana-tinged blues, this really is one of our favourite bands of the last 12 months, and if these tunes are anything to go by they are likely to be for the next 12 months.
