SPECIAL INNER SLEEVE ,
LTD ED The Cincinnati, Ohio trio the Buffalo Killers are a whole lot of psychedelic stoner rock and mid-west country blues with cues that liken to the Allman Brothers, Spencer Dickinson, and the North Mississippi All-Stars. Lots of traditional inferences can be correlated in their music, from Neil Young 's days in Crazy Horse, along with the country blues stylings of The Greenhornes and the contemporary vibes of the Trainwreck Riders and Two Gallants . Their self-titled album imbues honky-tonk tunes with the vocal accelerants reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne's days in Black Sabbath , especially in "Heavens You Are." Band members Joseph Sebaali on drums and brothers Zachary Gabbard on bass and Andrew on guitar, strike a common ground between The White Stripes bluesy hydras and the honky-tonk rock of Lynyrd Skynyrd .
The chill-out psychedelics are splattered all over the tunes, giving them a laid back ride. Selections like "River Water" and "With Love" have a 70s rock coloring similarly to early Peter Frampton. The heavier Southern rock clamps on "Down In The Blue" and "Children Of War" have a more contemporary rigging like Government Mule . These songs were designed to invite audiences to join in with the band. Then there is the drowsy feel of the vocals and chord levels on "Fit To Breathe" which induce a drug-state, stoner rock emission in the music, making it inclusive to the band. The Buffalo Killers show influences of 70s psychedelics, country, blues, stoner rock, and honky-tonk in their numbers. The music of the Allman Brothers and Spencer Dickinson have similar markings and grooves to these songs. Produced by John Curley , the Buffalo Killersdebut album delivers country blues with an assortment that keeps the tempo laid back and the movements chilled. Susan Frances / Hybrid Magazine
