Solitude & Sin The Neil Young style won me. This is a great find in my daily feed. Had just finished watching 3 hours of back to back Iceman docs and was looking for music to write to. First track was spot on for that nostalgic crime era. Favorite track: Pocket Full Of Knife.

peterockon King Buffalo are up there with The Doors and Pink Floyd. Great psychedelic music, takes me back to Woodstock. Love the band. Pete from OZ

Harry Harrison Beautifully trippy, wonderfully heavy psych. At one moment sounding Samsara Blues Experiment, the next a freakish Slow Season melded with All Them Witches, but always oh-so-good. What a wonderful Demo. There’s not a bad song here but I’ll have to go with the ethereal Providence Eye. Favorite track: Providence Eye.

“For a demo recorded over the course of two days in their practice space, King Buffalo have some finely recorded tunes that put even some professionally recorded material to shame. The sound is heavy psych rock with a blend of 70′s hard rock and plenty of fuzz. Bands such as The Black Angels and Dead Meadow appear to be influences… You’re going to love what you hear.” – Bill Goodman from The Evil Engineer

“Holy crap; give King Buffalo a listen and be mesmerized by the Neil Young qualities that are alive in the psychedelic stoner blues that is brought to you by four Rochester, NY freaks. Especially on the first track Pocket Full Of Knife you dream away and feel completely at home on the range. And then on the second Mr. Young implores some Wovenhand and gets even more mysterious.” – Stoner Hive (Netherlands)

“It may only be a demo, but King Buffalo smack with a real and tangible promise. Every element of it’s 22 minute run time ebbs and flows with exceptional grace and execution. From its amalgamation of stoner rock and folk to its eerie melancholy that manages to simultaneously ooze buckets of psychedelica. I’ve lost count of just how many times I’ve played this demo from start to finish but the more I listen the more I hear elements of The Doors. Keep a close eye on this lot, I think they may just have what it takes…” – Jay from Ride With The Devil (United Kingdom)

“The … Demo … took only two days, and probably this is due to the fact organic aura of compositions and spontaneity, gushing through the psychedelic heavy texture. The guitars weave airy melodies with neo-psychedelic color and knit riffs crammed into a faint fuzz stoner patterns, which is embellished with touches of the blues pithy bass, but with generous amounts of groove having an almost imperceptible psych flavor, drums. T Their Demo is amazing and highly addictive.” – Phantasmagoria (Greece)

“Spaced-out rivers of fuzz, floated along with a kind of ethereal vibe, something only amplified by the slow and echoed vocals. Eerie and sinuating, with a rock-steady rhythm section providing the foundation for the band to stuff in plenty of psychedelic elements. All in all this is a righteous collection of tracks, especially for a first demo. Even the sound quality is quite good, with all of the songs having a fuzzy feel that lends quite while to the music.” – Church Of The Riff

“Rochester’s King Buffalo takes us on a bluesy stoner-psych trip with their first self-produced demo. Reminiscent to the likes of Fatso Jetson, The Kings of Frog Island and Mars Red Sky, the band’s dreamy immersive sound will be stuck in your head for days to come. Recorded in only 2 days, this sure is an impressive first effort. Better keep a close eye on King Buffalo, these guys have some great future potential!” – Robin from Stonerobixxx (Belgium)

“King Buffalo … languid, naturalistic grooves that pervade their aptly-titled debut …and for having been recorded over the course of two days at the band’s practice space comes through clear and naturally, the airy guitars leading the charge of an organic vibe that recalls some of the heavy psych… with, a light rural touch and Neil Young influence in the vocals... exciting even on multiple listens. ” – H.p. Taskmaster from The Obelisk

"The music is very beautiful, laid-back and meditative hypnotic while grooving as hell. There is also a feature of progressive folk and even slightly tribal features hidden in the details that I like and also the beautifully blending between fuzzed out riffs and brittle sounding clean guitars. I get associations to a raw, heavy and somewhat spaced out Neil Young at times and sometimes a hint of The Doors , but in a more modern twist.” – Spader Ess Review (Sweden)

King Buffalo Rochester, New York

“King Buffalo is a psychedelic trio in the classic format, whose expansive and thunderous music is a powerful concoction of heavy psych, blues, and stoner rock. Texturally rich and oozing with psychedelic goodness, yet honed and driving in the next blink of an eye. Their efforts coupled with their impressive live show, quickly gained them an international audience.” - Sludgelord ... more
