King Buffalo is a heavy blues psychedelic trio from Rochester, N.Y. formed in 2013.
The latest LP released is The Burden of Restlessness (2021). You will immediately be struck by the 70’s groove reworked with repeated notes to form sound puzzles, heavy driving riffs and fine keyboard arrangements with a restless mood.
The compositional brand remains consistent throughout the LP. The use of the voice that vaguely recalls Kevin Moore with the Chroma Key project, makes the sound and the songs captivating with a sick and distorted streak.
Another year lost in the wasteland
Another day drowns in dust
Another one dead in the wasteland
I feel it falling apart
Too many blisters and scars
Are we the wick or the flame? Are they just one in the same?
Was it just doomed from the start?
King Buffalo – The Burden of Restlessness requires listening and that best represents the discomfort of this pandemic period and the mental inquietude that we experience every day.
