Everyone should be heading into this gorgeous weather weekend with some good tunes so this Friday I bring you, Buxton and their third record and first on New West Records, Nothing Here Seems Strange.
All week I’ve been holding out on posting this and I think it’s because of how much I sincerely love this album and their folk-rock sound, I wanted to keep it a secret but what fun would that be.
The album starts off with some slow harmonies (but in a good way – “Wolves & Owls” and “Fingertips”) before ratcheting it up and kicking some serious butt. Just give “Blown A Fuse” a listen and it will all make sense, I promise. For whatever reason the harmony on “Broken From Bread” makes me think of the Grateful Dead, but the best of the album I believe is with the single, “Boy of Nine” and “Down In The Valley.”
If you are fan of White Denim, DAWES, Middle Brother, Ryan Bingham, Fleet Foxes, The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams and the likes, you are definitely going to be digging the Buxton sound.
