This is how to start off 2020.
Austin-based drone/psych rock masters – and longtime Austin Music Minute favorite – Lord Buffalo heads out on tour in a few days, in support of their new album, Tohu Wa Bohu, a soundscape pulsating with dramatic highs and lows; your AMM host would go so far as to say that that is a signature move of theirs, from the quietest lows to ferocious highs, leaving one absolutely dumbfounded and unnerved from the sheer intensity. The power behind its execution is hypnotic.
In June, Lord Buffalo releases a split LP with Denver doomgaze band Palehorse/Palerider on the Albuquerque-based Desert Records label. Meanwhile, make plans to catch Lord Buffalo at their album release show this Friday night at The Lost Well, 2421 Webberville Rd. The line-up is going to knock it completely out of the park with Pinkish Black, Bridge Farmers and Dead Animal. The music kicks off at 9 p.m.
The ultimate. So recommended it hurts.
