Fact: Young Buffalo are not actually a herd of buffalo. They are, however, pretty darn young looking. Like I needed to feel any older this week. They are also a trio from Oxford, Mississippi, recently signed to Fat Possum records. Their first album is forthcoming next year; while we wait to see what these guys can do on a full length, however, here’s a track from the album to get you all interested now. They’ve got a jangly rock sort of sound — lots of big chords, but also lots of tight harmonies. Looking forward to hearing more!
If you want to hear more, you can see Young Buffalo tonight at Lincoln Hall, opening for Jenny Owen Youngs and Wakey!Wakey!
