Joshua B. The bass tone knocked my socks off on first listen. WOW. So full and gritty. Absolutely love it. Favorite track: Drinking From the River Rising.

Steve This band produces so much more than music. It's a freakin' interstellar journey set to rolling, pounding drums, deep, unwavering bass lines & light/heavy/screaming guitar... always with vocals helping paint a picture of the journey made. Every K.B. album is psych rock perfection (imo). My pick as "favorite" is only because I saw the live version on their "Quarantine Sessions" that eventually made my head explode (think "Scanners")! Love this band. And I'm not really a psych rock guy. Until now! Favorite track: Sleeps On a Vine.

about

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
