More summery than Black Stone Cherry, less American than Lynyrd Skynyrd and almost as beardy as The Black Crowes, Buffalo Summer make rock n’ roll look easy, swaggering louchely through a set of riff-laden monsters that owe as much to Southern Rock as they do to British classic rockers like Led Zep and Free.

Hailing from Wales, Jonny Williams, Andrew & Gareth Hunt and Darren King strike a similar pose to Ireland’s The Answer – dragging the 60’s into the modern day one riff at a time.

She’s All Natural and Down To The River should be all over radio already if there was any justice, while Rolls On Through is a bluesy jam of the kind The Stones used to knock out effortlessly.

Getting their groove on with the majestic riffs and incendiary soloing of March Of The Buffalo, it’s easy to see why these guys have pulled some high profile support slots (Status Quo, Duff McKagen’s Walking Papers) this year, and Ain’t No Other boasts one of the best choruses of the year.  The album is rounded out in fine style with the hair flailing Typhoid Mary and the wailing and soulful Ol’ Duke.

Kicking the door down, doing their business on the rug and then fucking off well before there’s any hint of them outstaying their welcome, Buffalo Summer deliver ten tracks of great rock n’ roll – nothing more, nothing less.  There’s no BullShit with these BS boys – it’s gonna be a long hot summer folks, get on board!!/buffalosummeruk
