DIG SO LOVE GROW
Buffalo Killers
(Southbound)

Ohio may have been a battleground state for the US election, but it's also home to a throwback three-piece who sound as if they are more likely to be interested in Johnson v Nixon than Obama v Romney (that's '68 for those without the history book on hand).

The doped-drawl, hippied harmonies and fuzzed-up guitars smack of CSNY, The Allman Brothers and, of course, the Dead - but these Buffalo Killers have been roaming their prairies for four albums now (eight if you count their previous band) and they have the same genuine grip on their sound as labelmates The Black Keys (whose Dan Auerbach produced their last full lengther).

Great, punchy, American rock that makes you want to grow a beard and retreat to Laurel Canyon.
