Lord Buffalo

Daniel Jesse Pruitt is the songwriter and singer of the band Lord Buffalo from Austin, Texas. They released their new EP a month ago.

There is raw passion surging from these songs. (No wonder the strings were literally covered with blood.) The vocals are kind of distant and echoey for most of the time, but they sound very direct and urging regardless. The arrangement is beautifully sparse, enriched with fitting sound effects created by clever manipulation of reverb units and guitar amps; that’s my guess at least. At the end, all these parts merge into a rather monumental soundscape that really pulls you in.

The closest to this that I’ve ever heard is The Firstborn Is Dead by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, an all-time favorite. It’s great that their legacy is not forgotten.
