Buffalo Tom: Skins (Scrawny Records, 2011)
Some indie veterans should have stayed in the 90’s, because they can’t come up with anything even half as good as back in the day. However, this is not the case with the Buffalo Tom. This legendary indie rock group continues to impress. Three Easy Pieces was a really good return four years ago and Skins might be even slightly better. Sure there’s a couple of mediocre songs in here and maybe nothing rises as high as Taillights Fade. But then again. What the hell does. That’s one of the best songs of the 90’s. Skins is a great record full of melodic high-quality alternative rock and especially Guilty Girls and She’s Not Your Thing rank high on my imaginary best songs of the year 2011 list.
