This is the 200th post of the year! I honestly didn't expect this to endure this long.  I must be really bored...

The Buffalo Killers
"Let it Ride" (Vinyl)

Coming out of the sleeve on a bright red vinyl record, this album was released in 2008 on the Alive! label and was produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach.

This band made up of shaggy, long -haired chubby boys from Cincinnati that seem to have no knowledge of what year it is.
With vocal harmonies that sound Cream-esque and a guitar sound that creates so much distortion it could knock your beer can over, the Gabbard brothers (plus drummer Joe) are writing songs for themselves to enjoy.  There's no pretense that they will be famous; just the knowledge they these steeped-in-southern rock tunes are exactly the sort of relaxed, harmonized tunes these boys want to be playing.
