Milwaukee’s country/americana band Buffalo Gospel is a big personal favourite. The debut album We Can Be Horses and the EP Waiting For The Lights To Go Out are both really dear to me and even though I’m contanstly searching for new music, those two have stayed in the rotation since they were released. Therefore one of my most anticipated 2018 releases was the new Buffalo Gospel album On The First Bell that came out on the 4th of May.
On The First Bell is a really heartwrenching album written in the aftermath of a divorce and a loss of a dear friend. The deep pain and darkness gently collides with warm and comforting country sounds and the end result is a powerful album that is far more likely to heal me than break me. Ryan Necci is a wonderful songwriter and one of the unsung country heroes. He has a voice that resonates with me and his songs cut right through to the core of my vulnerable being and hold me until the night turns into a day. This is High Time To Hang Fire from the new album.
And I also have to use this opportunity to share a couple of back catalogue songs that show slightly different sides of the band, because I love everything they’ve done. So start with the new one and work your back into these great things.
