BUFFALO KILLERS - Let It Ride (Prod. by Dan of the Black Keys) - CD
Produced by Dan Auerbach. Cincinnati, Ohio's native Buffalo Killers struts with the moan of a blues-laden trio who mix vintage tone with growling guitars to formulate passionate testimonials of lost love, desperate aggression and reckless endangerment. It is the underbelly of American rock 'n' roll, and with the release of their sophomore album, Let It Ride, the Buffalo Killers have been hatched upon the age in a time of desperate need.
"Sleek in a tattered way and possessing a ferocious assault, the Brothers Gabbard (Zachary - bass and vocals, Andrew - guitar and vocals, joined by Joseph Sebaali - drums) have channeled a wrinkled, raspy-toned muse who was too purposely intoxicated to catch the train of trend. This is a story about defiance and destiny, the snarling moan of a scene crawling beneath the bustling avenues" - Martin Halo / JamBase.
"Recorded in Akron, Ohio and a liner note nod to Black Crowes frontman, Chris Robinson, the recording sports ten songs of oozing rock glory. Even though production credits and the tone of the record come from Auerbach, the song structure is directly influential from that of the Black Crowes." - Downtown Money Waster
"The Buffalo Killers sound like the bastard sons of the James Gang and the Black Crowes. But like both bands, the Buffalo Killers come by their sound naturally. It's organic, dripping with down home funk. It's groovin' - oozing with soul, draped in grittiness and filled with tasty, but not overwhelming guitar licks." - Willy Wilson/Real Detroit Weekly
