Another day; another dollar; another headache. Such is life at Ground Zero of Corporate Hell this week. Hey, at least I haven’t killed anyone yet and I’m getting lots accomplished. Must be all the good music I’m getting lost in. This morning then I’m setting the work pace to the self-titled eponymous album by Buffalo Fuzz.
Buffalo Fuzz is a two piece heavy blues ensemble (Jared Zachary – guitars, bass and vocals, Jake Allan on drums) hailing from Minneapolis, MN. This debut album, released just this past September (2016), effortlessly glides through gritty vocals, bass-laden riffs, and songs that are on the precipice of exploding into a drunken blues furore of dramatic proportions.
Toothy grit, hard lines, and heavy riffs…oh my!
The past and future of blues music collide here in every thunderous snap of the string, shooting a pulse of electricity into an army of soul-dripping tube amps. The highly-acclaimed singles ‘Perfect Man‘ and ‘Ain’t Seen a Cent‘ are awesome. Over the 11 tracks, the album covers an array of classic rock and blues aesthetics while remaining true to the honesty and authenticity of lyrics, tone, and groove. The groovy fuzz incinerates the airwaves with smoky bass lines, battering riffs, and bluesy chops. 2-pieces aren’t supposed to sound like this, are they?
But they do and it’s fantastic!
It’s like The Black Keys being trampled by stampeding bison through the desert sands in search of Sabbath.
Perfect for avoiding office bullshit.
